What to do in Lloret de Mar?

The Castle of Sant Joan has incredible views, it is a castle located at the top of the hill that separates the beaches of Lloret de Mar and Fenals. Its chapel was consecrated in 1079, but today there are only a few vestiges of it as a result of different wars, but the tower of homage remains in place. It has good access on foot or by vehicle. We advise you to go in the evening to watch the sunset.

Cultural visit in Lloret de Mar

 

Lloret de Mar is usually associated with beaches, sun and summer activities, although it is much more than that! If you are in the city, you must also get to know its culture and history, as well as its emblematic buildings and museums.

If you want to get to know the city in depth, here’s our proposal:

  • Sant Romà Church

You’ve probably seen this building if you have looked up when walking around the city. This church is without a doubt Lloret de Mar’s emblematic building. Although the church began to be built in 1509, its chapels are modernist in style and represent one of the most important works of Catalan modernism from the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th.

Definitely an architectural gem to be appreciated!

  • Casa Font

To continue with the modernist jewels of Lloret de Mar you must visit the Casa Font, a modernist manor house from 1898 that belonged to the indiano (people that came back rich from America) Nicolau Font. You will transport yourself to the Catalan modernist bourgeoisie era and appreciate its decoration and rich craftsmanship and the beauty of all the details of its rooms.

  • Museu del Mar – Can Garriga

The Museu del Mar is another of the most charming and historic sites in Lloret de Mar. In its time, it was the indiano house of Enric Garriga, who made his fortune in Cuba and when he returned, built this house in Lloret’s downtown. In 1981 it became a museum and one of the most famous tourist attractions of the city that you can’t miss. It represents a journey in time and the relationship between the city and the sea.

  • Modernist Cemetery of Lloret de Mar.

Finally, don’t forget to visit the Modernist Cemetery of Lloret de Mar. Built between 1896 and 1901 by Joaquim Artau, coinciding with the return of many indianos (people returning from America) to their original villages which, after making a fortune, commissioned pantheons and mausoleums of great modernist artists like Puig i Cadafalch to perpetuate their memory.

It is without doubt one of the most outstanding tourist attractions of the city, since it gives us a wide perspective on what funerary art was during the Catalan modernism splendour.
