  • Super place with views of the surrounding countryside. The entrance fee, but worth paying and climb up to a height of. The stairs very steep and winding.

  • We went to the castle of St. John from Lloret de Mar evening along the shore. Hoping that there is a passage. First go well paved trails through the picturesque slopes, and then they run into some sort of restaurant. It was dark and it was absolutely clear that ago to return to laziness, there is no way forward. There is only one way out-just go up. And we got to the dark castle. It is highlighted. By the time it was still not too late, but in October, quickly darkens, the castle was closed. Walked through the Woods on his light. When reached, her husband said: "I saw the castle of St. Ivan? Forget! "a second time go exactly there. Very high! Near pevensey Castle. So we went back down the stairs in Lloret. Don't be afraid to get lost! About tourists there is taken care of!

  • The castle of St. John is a prominent landmark in Lloret de Mar, in the sense that, Castell de Sant Joan is visible from almost any point on the coast. The Tower-great views of the coast, but to look at Lloret de Mar and the Mediterranean Sea from the heights of the Tower have to fork out for 3 euros. In General tolerated.
