Castell de Sant Joan (Sant Joan Castle), Lloret de Mar

(3.2/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Sitting on a hilltop, Castell de Sant Joan (Sant Joan Castle) is an 11th-century castle that was largely destroyed in 1805 by the British navy. Now, the site serves as a monument where you can learn about medieval history. Climbing the hill and the tower can be tiring, but the view from the top is worth it. There are also informational signs on the castle’s history, although English descriptions are a little lacking. English brochures are often available at the entrance, and provide more detail. Make Castell de Sant Joan (Sant Joan Castle) part of your personalized Lloret de Mar itinerary using our Lloret de Mar vacation builder.

  • Passing through lloret, we went to the castell sant joan, narrow road and who climbs hard, but in good condition. The parking lot is small enough, in season it must be fair. Building in good condition, great panorama but it was soon made the turn.

  • From the castle of St. John survived one tower and fragments of walls. His visit is completely free. But the most important thing is the vistas from the top of the Castle, which is open for 360 degrees around. At a glance-Blanes, Lloret de Mar, the Mediterranean Sea, mountains. Beauty!

  • Do not fail to go to this corner of Lloret.del castle itself, is only a tower and little more but the views are outstanding, especially for evening listening to the sea at your feet.
