Lloret de Mar Route
Easy. Some of the heritage elements on this route are located in the town centre, while the rest are accessed from a wide forest track that starts at the Municipal Cemetery (C/ de Plató) and ends up at Sant Pere del Bosc.
Descripction: Lloret de Mar was profoundly transformed in the second half of the 19th century, first of all by the return of the indianos who had made their fortune in America, and then by the first summer residents. The legacy they left behind was so significant that it has not been extinguished by the far-reaching transformation experienced by the town from the second half of the 20th century, as this route makes crystal clear.
- Museu del Mar – Can Garriga (pg. Verdaguer). Family home of the indiano Enric Garriga i Mataró, who made his fortune in Cuba.
