Church Santa Maria Cadaques

Address:Carrer de l'Església. 17488 Cadaqués

A short path climbs uphill to the sixteenth-century Santa Maria Church, with a simple exterior and tall belfry. A wrought-iron door bearing symbols of the town and the
sea opens to the ornate eighteenth-century altarpiece; among the gilded carvings are Atlas supporting the world, St Rita, patron saint of the impossible, and St Barbara, protector from storms and shipwrecks. The church hosts classical music concerts every summer; for information and tickets, contact the tourist office. Below the church, the pretty streets around Dr Callis and des Call gradually become busier with smart clothes shops, restaurants and artists’ studios and galleries before emerging into the tiny Plaça Dr Trèmols, where a narrow archway leads down to the seafront.
