The Setting for a Work of Fiction
Many people are sure to like how this magnet souvenir from Spain brings what may very well be a familiar landscape directly to their home. It seems like the setting for a work of fiction and may consequently bring to mind notions of pirate ship, buried treasure and so forth. Which actually isn't too far from the truth as the castle in the heart of this magnet was actually erected for defensive purposes, including to keep pirates at bay. But more likely that not you remember for its awe-inspiring beaches that you surely have seen in tourist campaigns a number of times.
The castle is bound to appear quite European in architectural style to anyone who comes across this magnet and can transport you into another time, perhaps close to when it was actually built.
Lloret de Mar in Detail
Lloret de Mar is one Spain`s best kept secrets. Its strategic position by the sea made it the preferred site for nobles and religious. Accordingly, two of its emblematic buildings, the castle of Lloret and the church of Sant Roma are located on top an elevation overlooking the sea. From the Eleventh to the Seventeenth centuries, the castle served as a fort to defend from the French, the British and the Turks who attacked the Iberian coast. The curious traveler can visit other attractions such as the monument of the seaman, the monument to the Angel, and the chapel of the Virgen de Gracia. If traveling with kids, visit the gardens of santa Clotilde, a magnificent green space designed by world famous Nicolau Maria Rubio Tuduri. If interested in relaxing, head to the beach, there are several one to pick: Cala Morisca, Cala Tortuga, Playa de Fenais and Santa Cristina among many others. By all means, this is a great travel souvenir to take back home.
