“An oasis of tranquility”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

I love this parish Church! I visit there every time I'm in Nerja.
It is a place of serenity and peace where there is a sense of history, spirituality and beauty all in one. It's in a great location right in the heart of Nerja. Definitely worth a visit for believers and non-believers!

“Lovely little church”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Went to Nerja in May and it was lovely to see a Scottish couple being married there. Very nice little church just off the square

“Worth a look”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Have visited this church a number of times.
Set in the main square of Nerja, its worth a look inside to see the ornate gold and effigies.

“Billsview”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We attended a wedding in this church a few years ago and decided to visit again while we were in Nerja. It is fairly attractive from the outside but inside, it is truly beautiful. I am not a religious person but have to admit that there is most definitely an aura of peace and tranquility within that you might seldom if ever, experience more than once or twice in a lifetime. The church is situated in the square directly opposite the Balcon de Europa and looks out to sea. Most definitely a 'must visit' if you go to Nerja.

“Another fascinating church”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

At last, a church open to the public - many in Spain seem to have strange opening hours. Not too overly grand, huge front inner doors. It seemed a real local church in a beautiful setting.
