Basilica of Santa Maria

17 reviews of Basilica of Santa Maria

Gothic-style

This Gothic-style church was built on the remains of one of the most important Moorish mosques of the era. The entryway is Baroque and the main altar and baptismal pool in the interior are done in the Rococo (Late Baroque) style, with Carrara white marble (from the school of Michelangelo) and a Gothic-style stone image of St. Mary.

An unknown treasure

This is an unknown treasure, even among us from Alicante. It’s full of interesting nooks and crannies, like the prison inside the medieval tower and the tombs which lie below the Renaissance chapel (possibly of victims of the bombardment in 1691 at the hands of the French forces). A third restoration was done on the part near Jorge Juan street, where you can find a small museum which explains the church-fort’s history.
