Castell de Sant Joan (Sant Joan Castle), Lloret de Mar
(2.1/5 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.

  • Just south Of The Lloret main Beach, But A Steep Climb up to it,would be good views, but appears only to be open limited hours on weekends & bank holidays. 
  • You have for 3 euros a wonderful view from the tower. You can see the remains of the old Castle. But the tower is only a few years old. Rebuilt from photos, because the original tower is destroyed by lightning.

  • This mini-chateau applies only to the path which is mene. Beautiful walk which borrows a hiking trail. The view is magnificent from the castel.
