The church does not go unnoticed because with its two domes made of typical Levantine blue tiles with white trim, it is present and visible from all points of the city. It is a beautiful architectural work of neo-baroque style with contemporary touches built on the foundations of an ancient temple. If the church is open, do not miss the opportunity to visit it, you will be surprised, you can also attend mass. Inside, at the high altar, you can see a beautiful altarpiece and we must highlight the large number and value of their statuary.

Adorning this magnificent ecclesiastical building, visitors can enjoy a maze of white houses with narrow streets and empedraras of extraordinary beauty, certainly a very charming place. Therefore, it is no wonder it is one of the busiest and most visited areas of Altea.
