“In the hilltop village...”

Church of Santa Maria
Ranked #3 of 22 things to do in Mojacar
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Located in the heart of Mojacar Pueblo, the Santa Maria Church was built in the 16th century over the remains of a mosque. The building serves as a religious and defensive fortress. The interior is simple and real, with few paintings of patron saints of the pueblo. The hilltop village is in the foothills of Sierra Cabrera Mountains. The narrow cobbled streets are full of shops and restaurants. The parking in the village is very limited, so came early in the day and park near Plaza Nueva.

A typical example of a Spanish church - lots of flowers & wall paintings - lovely
Although very small there were lots of interesting things to see.
Behind the altar was the most beautiful wall art .

Beautiful church situated in the centre of Mojacar Pueblo. Internal painting delightful. An oasis of quiet in what can be a very busy little hilltop village.

The church is very welcoming and has recently celebrated 500 years!!!!!!
It is situated in the heart of Mojacar pueblo (village). As such it is a bit of a walk to get there but well worth the visit.
