GLORIOUS INTERIOR

Beautiful decorated ceiling and fine features. It is worth sitting inside and meditating. The busy life goes on outside and within it is timeless

This neo-classical parish church of Sant Vicenç was built in 1755 and is located near old town. Inside have some nice paintings and sculptures. Unfortunately I have not got any concert during my holidays.

Perfect, but please respect when mass is on, not good to walk around & take photos, instead sit/kneel & enjoy the ceremony

In the heart of Tossa De Mar this nice but not grand church sits. It is not well lit so appears a bit dull at first glance. With it's high vaulted ceilings its a bit cave like. This all adds to the atmosphere within. If you like churches it's worth a visit.

We wandered through the little streets to find this gem. Monks singing in the background and beautiful murals

From the top of the Roman castle I had noticed this church. It looked lovely and I decided to go and find it. I certainly enjoyed this Neo-classical parish. I liked especially its ceiling, with dark blue colors surrounded by stars. On the side there are paintings of flowers and other motives. It’s truly attractive. This church has also a... More

Beautiful but dark church. It is also really nice that you can still lit actual candles in here in stead of the electric ones. You can also donate 1 euro to turn on the (normal) lights for 3 minutes which is a bit weird. No entry fee needed

We attended a classical guitar recital held in the church and it was wonderful . These have been held over the summer and I would recommend these if you enjoy your music .

I'd like to start with one thing: visitors, SHAME on you! half naked "ladies" in bikini tops! With side boob view! Really?! This church is beautiful but VERY DARK. We went inside and walked all around in silence. It has beautiful sacral art work every few steps and I think 14 sacral wooden icons on the wall on the left... More
