Basilica Of Santa Maria Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful historical church, both inside and out. Ornate baroque decorations. Balcony inside ideal for choir or individual singers. Square outside ideal for gathering congregation.
Oldest church of Alicante. Lovely facade. Interiors were pleasant although nothing spectacular. Most interesting was however the 2 canon balls from 18th or 19th century seaside attacks atill embedded on one of the outside walls!
Beautiful place worth going to see very clean
From our hotel room we looked right down onto the Basilica and it was quite a sight. With the window open you could sometimes hear someone praying or perhaps later a rowdy group of young students. It was such a sight. I could see from our room that someone had tossed a sneaker up onto the ledge so look at my pic. Inside was lovely and there was actually a service happening when we entered. Take your time and soak up everything g here as it is quite majestic s Wheelchair friendly. Kid friendly.
It was closed during our visit. A beautiful and monumental building.
