Cadaqués is the most Eastern village of the Iberian Peninsula.
Its location between rock mass and the sea create a special atmosphere of this picturesque village.
At the highest point of the old town you find the Santa Maria Church. It is a late Gothic building, which begun in the mid-sixteenth century and finished in the eighteenth century. Inside we find a prodigious Baroque wooden altarpiece made in 1725 and gold in 1788, designed by Jacinto Moretó and carried out by Pau Costa.
The Church of Santa Maria appears as a point of reference in many pictures of Cadaques.
Th fishing activity has lost much importance, now tourism is the most important part of the economy of Cadaques.
The Natural Park 'Cabo de Creus' occupies an important part of the town.
In addition to the surrealist painter Salvador Dalí, Cadaqués has also attracted many painters and famous people (Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Marcel Duchamp etc ...)
