“Beauty in the inside and the outside”

Ex colegiata de Santa Maria la Mayor
Ranked #4 of 16 things to do in Alcaniz
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 December 2016

Before I entered into this church, I stopped and admired its huge door. Its door was made of metal and it had quite a bit of decorations chiseled in the wall. It was truly beautiful! Wow!

Once inside, it was quite clear that this was built in the Gothic style, my favorite! I found out it was built in the 13th century. Quite old!

The nave and the ceiling were quite high and it looked more like a temple.
I was intrigued by the many paintings and statues. There were chapels in every nook!

A big crown was hanging from the ceiling right above the main altar. Majestic!
This church truly stands out!

When I came back that same evening, I saw several storks taking their lodge on the top of this church. No one would ever be able to disturb them! It’s an ideal place for a good sleep!

I truly enjoyed this church. Quite lovely!

Thank Robby G C

Too bad we could not Take a photo with the Bethleem setting from inside.!...

For such a small city, this cathedral is a big surprise. Very nice!

The inside of the basilica is pretty simple, with little character and decor. One expects more from the outside but I felt flat as soon as I stepped in
