Sant Feliu de Guíxols

Sant Feliu de Guíxols is a municipality in the province of Girona in the Spanish autonomous region of Catalunya. The place is a resort on the Costa Brava. Sant Feliu has developed into a major tourist center in recent years.

One of the most famous monuments of the place is the Benedictine monastery; its origins goes back to the 10th century. The monastery building was modified several times and currently houses a historical museum. The Porta Ferrada is part of the complex and is the symbol of Sant Feliu. The monastery is one of the finest examples of medieval architecture in the city.

The Pedralta is a strange rock formation which attracts many visitors. It is an 80-ton rock balancing seemingly effortlessly on its point. Yet the rock tumbled over in 1996 and put back into place in 1999. From this point you have a beautiful view of the surroundings. Make sure the wear good footwear for the climb is quite heavy.

The Casino La Constancia is a beautiful building with a great artistic and architectural value. The building is characterized by a blend of Art Nouveau and Neo-Mudéar elements and was built in 1888 by the architect Guitart. The building is also known as the Casino dels Nois.

The Plaça del Mercat is the public and economic center of Sant Feliu. Every morning there is a fruit and vegetable market and on Sundays there is a big market. The square is surrounded by stately buildings including the covered market of 1929 and the town hall of 1547. The square is adorned with pergolas that provide some shade in the middle of summer.

The Passeig del Mar is the promenade along the beach of Sant Feliu. An ideal place to chill and hang out, get some fresh air and have a drink at one of the many terraces. The total coastline of Sant Feliu is about ten km long. There are three main beaches and also a number of smaller beaches and beautiful bays. The beaches of Platja d'Aro and Sant Pol are also worth a visit.
