Lloret de Mar is still home to a few spaces that will remind you of the close links the town has maintained with the sea over the years.
The architecture of the ‘Indianos’ who left and returned from overseas, the building where the traditional process of dyeing fishing nets took place or the homage paid to the hard life of fishermen commemorated by the Tirada a l’Art are just a few examples of places you can visit during your stay.
Located on the waterfront promenade, Can Garriga is one of the most important ‘Indiano’ houses in Lloret de Mar. Currently, this house, together with its neighbouring property, is home to the Maritime Museum, where you can learn about Lloret de Mar’s connection with the sea.
The current headquarters of the Lloret de Mar Fisherman’s Guild. Located in the town centre, it still serves its original purpose as a space where fishermen go to dye their nets.
A small cove next to Lloret Beach and at the start of the coastal trail that runs from Lloret de Mar to Tossa de Mar. It stretches below D’en Plaja Castle, the iconic symbol that dominates the spectacular views of the city.
In 1966, a bronze statue called the Dona Marinera (Fisherman’s Wife) Monument was commissioned. You can admire this beautiful creation at the end of Lloret Beach. A piece by artist Ernest Maragall, its height of 2.4 m leaves a lasting impression.
The earliest records of this chapel date back to 1376, but the current building was constructed at the end of the 18th century. The chapel was built in the neoclassical style and its main lavish altar was made in Italy. It houses an interesting collection of ex-votos and miniature ships.
A mile north of Lloret, amongst a group of small coves, you can find the town’s only marina. Located on Canyelles Beach, medium-sized craft can be moored here.
In this small cove, Lloret wished to pay homage to those who emigrated and returned without having accomplished their dreams by placing a plaque on the rocks.
