Basílica de Santa María

Basílica de Santa María Review

Constructed in a Gothic style over the city's main mosque between the 14th and 16th centuries, this is Alicante's oldest house of worship. The main door is flanked by beautiful baroque stonework by Juan Bautista Borja, and the interior highlights are the golden rococo high altar, a Gothic image in stone of St. Mary, and a sculpture of Sts. Juanes by Rodrigo de Osona.
