Almere, Netherlands

It truly is, my first time in Llorret de Mar, and all i knew was like, beach and party at night for young people, taking alcohol, but it has so much more. Since i am not one for the nightlife, i do love architecture and history, this was a big surprise.

This is one of the must-see attractions when taking a stroll around the centre of Lloret. It is one of the town’s most representative buildings.

The church was built in Catalan Gothic style, between 1509 and 1522. It had fortification features, for example a raising door, and it originally had a single nave. Later, during the rest of the 16th century and throughout the 17th century, other rooms must have been built on, above all, side chapels, as deduced from the information there is about several altars and altarpieces.

Whenever visitors to Lloret wander the streets of the town center, they are struck by the dazzling beauty of Sant Romà's Parish Church, a building which has become one of Lloret's distinctive landmarks. Before constructing the parish church, the former building was known as "Sa Carbonera", since it was the place where the coal was stored, in order to make the loading of the ships easier, because of the proximity to the sea. Built in a transitional Gothic-Renaissance style, it consisted of a single nave surrounded by several fortifying elements such as a drawbridge.

The two side chapels, El Baptisteri and El Santíssim Sagrament Chapel are in Modernista** style and are the work of Bonaventura Conill i Montobbio in 1916. In modern art style there are, among others, a stone image of The Virgin of Loreto and a carving of the Holy Christ, both by the sculptor Monjo.

An absolute piece of art in the form of a church. The church of Sant Roma is located at a little quiet square in the very center of busy Lloret de Mar. The mosaics and the unusual colors for a church, make this sight one of the most picturesque and interesting points in Lloret.

Catalunya is the stage for interesting and innovative architecture and art, this church is an absolute must for art enthusiasts.

Esta iglesia fue toda una sorpresa. Tiene un estilo gótico modernista propio catalán, llena de colorido que recuerda a algunas obras de Gaudí. La iglesia de construyó en el siglo XVI aunque las obras de remodelación que se hicieron en el siglo XX le dio el aspecto que tiene hoy en día, con influencias musulmanas, bizantinas y renacentistas. Una autentica maravilla.

Una iglesia muy atípica por fuera, dado su particular construcción en estilo gótico catalán y que en parte nos hizo acordar a las obras de Gaudi en Barcelona. Los techos coloridos de la bóveda, sus terminaciones irregulares en las torres y sus paredes coloridas generan una imagen impactante y diferente cuando uno paseo por el centro de la ciudad. Por dentro la ambientación es más sobria, aunque sus vitreux le dan un toque especial. Un sitio para ir en familia.
