La Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús, Torrevieja

Sagrado Corazon de Jesus

La Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús (or Sacred Heart of Jesus church) is a strikingly modern building in the centre of Torrevieja. I nver got to investigate the interior, because we were on a fleeting trip through the plaza in which it’s situated, but the building itself is gorgeous.

I know I’ve gone on record before as not being a fan of religion, but I do admire church architecture in a perverse way. On one hand, the level of inspiration that religion drives is fascinating to me. On the other, some of the oppulence found in churches scares me when a majority of believers are working class or worse.

The stark white walls of La Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús are dazzling in the midday sun – a beautiful sight in the middle of the sometimes sandy-coloured city of Torrevieja!

If anyone has pictures of the interior, please share them with me and I’ll publish them here!
