We walked around Cadaques and came across this beautiful church that overlooks the town. Did not manage to get inside as it was closed. Beautiful on the outside.

The alter is spectacular, and the view over the bay from the front of the cathedral is really special too. If the gate is locked, drop a Euro in the box on the left and open the gate on the far right.

A beautiful example of a Baroque altar. Seen one church seen them all? No, they all have a different feel to them and their alcoves seem to shimmer.

Spectacular views from outside across the ay and rooftops of Cadaques, the walk up through the pretty cobble streets is worth it in itself. The church was closed and pitch dark!! Luckily I saw the box to the left as you enter, you can pay...More

Walk up the neat small streets to the church. It is free and only 1 euro to turn on altar lights. Good photo opportunities from outside the church of the city and harbor.
