Rest for a while and spend for a candle! A quiet place with some paintings. It is a small church and I recommend it to escape from all the commercial stuff outside.

The church of Santa Maria is more or less in the middle of the pueblo but is such a wonderful quiet and peaceful place to visit. Pop in and out a few euros in their tin.

Small and unassuming in the center of the village. It's often closed, but even when you can get in, there is little to see. It's small and plain inside.

Sorry I am unable to help here. Perhaps you could ask locally when visiting Old Town - Mojacar Pueblo. Thanks, Clare.
