Sant Romà Church

The Church of Sant Romà is a building you have to see if you are in Lloret de Mar. Built between 1509 and 1522, in Catalan Gothic style, with elements of fortification. The side chapels were added later to the initial construction. There is a wonderful altarpiece inside, work of the painters Lo Grec (Pere Serafí) and Jaume Fontanet.

One of its chapels has a curious fact, the one that stands out the most and often the one that represents Lloret, the chapel of the Blessed Sacrament. Its construction was financed by an "indiano" of the town. In the 14th century, the Indianos were the young men who went to "las Indias" (America) to seek their fortune. Most of them succeeded and used part of their new wealth to remodel the village. The Indiano Narcís Gelats, became rich in Cuba, without returning to Lloret de Mar he decided to pay for the construction of an emblematic chapel that has a modernist dome and colored tiles
