Lloret of the Returnees Made wealthy through shipping and overseas business, especially in Cuba, many sons of Lloret returned to their town, abandoned their old ancestral homes and built aristocratic-looking mansions in a neoclassical, modernist or eclectic style. Modernist Lloret The Indianos or returnees also left a legacy of modernist art in Lloret de Mar. A good example is the modernist cemetery designed by the renowned architect Puig i Cadafalch (one of the biggest names in Catalan modernism). Other buildings in town also exemplify this style: the vicarage, the Santíssim and Baptisteri chapels. The Origins of Lloret Lloret de Mar has the remains of 3 Iberian settlements: Montbarbat, Puig de Castellet and Turó Rodó. Puig de Castellet (650m2) is situated 2 kilometres from the town on a strategic site with views over the whole area, from the mouth of the Tordera River down to the coastline of Lloret. Lloret also has a medieval legacy.
