Basilica of Santa Maria of Castelló d’Empúries Castelló d'Empúries


(+34) 972 158 019

Given that the town of Castelló acquired the status of the capital of the county, the Santa Maria church was built from the outset with the idea of taking on the structure of a cathedral. Despite the fact that the architectural structure of the cathedral suffered much deterioration and damage during the successive wars, restoration work has never stopped, meaning that we can now contemplate wonderful sights such as the 14th century funeral sculptures, the relief work from the elaborate arch stones collection and above all, the excellent work on the main façade and the altarpiece of the main altar, which constitute a repertoire of medieval art that can only be witnessed in cathedral churches. It is the second most significant religious monument within Girona’s different regions. This building finally received the classification of Basilica in 2006.
