This small chapel belonged to the former charity hospital of Lloret, which was founded in 1445 by Narcís Oliveres, canon of Girona cathedral and administrator of the Provostship of the month of November and, as such, lord of the territory of Lloret.
When the new hospital was built, this chapel annex was put up for sale by the town council and bought on 21 June 1881 by the canon Dr Narcís Domènech Parés who then granted it to the parish.
Did you know that… in the 18th century the hospital had no beds?
This can be deduced from a document from 1716 in which the intendant of Catalonia, Patiño, had a survey conducted to establish the resources of each town following the War of Succession. The people of Lloret explained that “the town has a hospital right in the middle, and it is for sheltering the poor strangers that pass through. There are no beds for sick people to sleep in. It has a chapel called ‘Los Sants Metges’”.
