En Plaja's Castle (1935)

This building, situated at the end of the Sa Caleta beach, is in fact a house-castle built by the Girona industrialist, Narcís Plaja. The project, dating from 1935, was the work of the Girona architect, Isidor Bosch. The image of the castle has become one of the symbols identifying Lloret, as, year in year out, it is the subject of postcards and photos taken by the thousands of tourists visiting the town.

Mossèn Jacint Verdaguer Promenade

Martí Sureda devised the plan for the esplanade, which would later bear the name of Jacinto Verdaguer, with just the right dimensions, without exaggeration, on land reclaimed from the sea. At one end, the Town Hall, the work of the architect Félix de Azúa, was built in 1872, while at the other the Garriga House, constructed in 1887, The construction of the Garriga House, previously mentioned. Thus, a promenade where palm trees would later be planted occupies the space between this house and the town hall, the Verdaguer promenade. This, along with the fact that the majority of the buildings along the front maintain a truly colonial air, was to give this urbanistic sector of Lloret a very evocative West Indian look.
