We are lucky to find ourselves in one of the most beautiful locations in our country. The Costa Brava is much more than beaches, it is also culture, so today we are going to make a most playful recommendation so that you can expand your knowledge and learn a little more about the past of some of the towns that make it up.
The Castle of Sant Joan is one of our recommendations, its history begins in the middle of the 13th century, when it was used to monitor the intrusions of pirates who sailed in its surroundings and thus offer the population of Blanes some security. Currently, it is one of the preferred locations for the panoramic views it offers. Some of the villas that you can find near this castle are Villa Alta Vista, Beau Soleil, Las Brisas, Cristina, Blue Bay among others.
In Lloret de Mar, you can find the Sant Pere del Bosc monastery, another of the most emblematic corners of the Costa Brava. Originally from the 10th century and used as a Benedictine monastery until the end of the 17th century, when it was burned down by the French. Even so, it continues to preserve part of its beauty and is one of the must-sees for those tourists who visit this town. It also has different villas where you can stay, such as Villa Eden, Villa Infinity or Villa Porto Pi.
La Catedral de Girona is another of the iconic monuments that can be visited, it was built during the 11th and 18th centuries with Gothic and Baroque aspects. In addition, all those lovers of the Game of Thrones series will have the possibility of being in one of the settings where the series was recorded.
