Santa Maria's Church of Cadaqués

The shape of this 16C church has been immortalised by many painters and is a symbol of Cadaqués. The exterior austerity of the building contrasts with the interior, that houses a baroque retable by Pau Costa. This work of art, one of the most remarkable of its kind in all Catalonia, was made by Joan Torras. It is a spectacular piece of gilded wood iconography.

Our reports

Cadaqués, one of the most stunning landscapes of the Costa Brava

Tucked away in a natural harbour sheltered by the Pyrenean foothills, Cadaqués, known as the white pearl of the Catalan coast, has long been a favourite with artists, starting with Dali. This tiny fishing port also leads to the Cap de Creus headland, one of Europe’s most beautiful marine and terrestrial nature reserves.
