Visit Sant Feliu de Guíxols monastery or tour the Paseo del Mar and Casa Patxot to discover the secrets and mysteries of this town full of history.
Sant Feliu de Guíxols Monastery
Sant Feliu de Guíxols Monastery is the most important and significant architectural feature in the area and is a National Cultural Heritage Site. The walled enclosure had thirteen towers and five portals and still retains important features such as its Romanesque Porta Ferrada (from the 10th century and one of the town’s symbols). Currently the monastery is the headquarters of the city’s History Museum.
Paseo del Mar
Sant Feliu de Guíxols’s seafront is a pleasant thoroughfare that was begun in 1833 with the collaboration of all citizens. This space, which over the years has changed in terms of development, has become a place for meetings and parties. Various large houses can be found along the seafront. Casa Patxot is currently the Chamber of Commerce Industry and Shipping. On the building's facade, there are different modernist features and Noucentisme details imbued with a certain classicism.
On the promenade stands out, for its striking colors, the neo-Mudejar style building of the Casino la Constància, built in the late nineteenth century.
