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

(2.2/5 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.

  • somehow, walking around the neighborhood, found on this tower. Inside get complex is a private area, stands the tower at the highest point of the Hill. Probably if the climb to the top-view is stunning.

  • a really nice fortress, cheap to pay entrance fee, only cost 2 euros I think. It can definitely be recommended, super nice views and area of forest, lots of lizards and beetles for the kids to look at. Please do note that it can be a tough walk and old man when the fortress is situated high up on a mountain/Hill.
