The Sant Feliu is steps from the historic center, next to the port, the beach (with a very pleasant urban environment) and the view of the boats and the lighthouse is phenomenal. It has showers, a playground and has easy access to the promenade. There can be strong winds, which are characteristic of this area, so if the sun shines you have to go protected.
The Monastery is perhaps one of the main heritage attractions of the city. Benedictine with origins that date back to the X century, it reached its height in the XII-XIII centuries when it dominated much of the surrounding territory. It is known as Porta Ferrada, the whole church is flanked by two towers, the Fum and the del Corn.
The Costa Brava has many places to lose yourself and relax and in the province of Girona there are few places where you can see the mountain alongside the beach. The beach of Sant Feliu is one of those sites, it's huge, very long and wide, making it ideal for any time of day, also it isn't one of those crowded beaches full of people who weren't invited - rather, the opposite.
Public fountain in Plaza del Mercado, opposite the town hall and dating from 1859. It is listed as a capital asset of the city and its value is its historical memory. It was one of the first water sources of the city and was donated by Feliu Cabarrocas a citizen residing in Sant Feliu, Cuba. I've seen pictures of the fountain, including a couple of lanterns, but currently it doesn't have them and seems somewhat abandoned.
El Paseo dels Guixols, is what is known as the second tranche of the promenade of Sant Feliu. It starts at the Rambla del Portalet and continues through the port. It differs from the Paseo del Mar, having areas with flowers, plants and the characteristic trees also which provide a much welcomed shade in summer.
Although the outdoor market was successful for many years, in approximately 1930 the indoor market was completed to allocate permanent stalls and better facilities to sell meat and fish. The project was commissioned in 1927 by city architect Joan Bordàs i Salellas. It is a ground floor building with a basement, blinds, opaque windows and metal structure with iron pillars. It was listed as historic and artistic heritage of the city after being mentioned in many guides and inventories of provincial architecture.
I really like this type of contemporary buildings. The station itself already provides, architecturally speaking, a number of dynamic elements, combining full and empty spaces and covered with matching shapes and panels. The bus station achieves this by its handling of raw cement, glass and materials that give strength to the design and the contrasts. The station is managed by the Sarfa group, it has a small inner lobby with lockers, food vending machines, toilets and a small tourist information office. It is also home to the city's economic development office that provides assistance to small businesses and is right next to the municipal parking and just a few steps from the historic city center.
Vilaret House is the building that houses the Toy History Museum on the Rambla Vidal. This ranked as Architectural Heritage by the City Council. It highlights a simple structure and geometrical facade, leading to the sobriety of one of the most important streets of th historical center. The interior, with beautiful stained glass windows, and ceiling decorations, make a unique space, even moreso the exceptionally bright patios and awnings.
On Rambla Vidal 22, stands La Caixa building, designed by architect Rafael Maso and Valenti.Designed for bank headquarters and library, was built between 1923 and 1924, and is currently listed as a building of local protection by the city council. What stands out is.the buildings design and the material used. It is an interesting tower, visible from the Rambla, balancing in this contemporary architectural style.
Viader House is at Rambla Vidal, 43 and is on a list of heritage properties (as categorized by the city council). The building was designed by architect Pere Pascual i Beguer (1848 - 1926) and was built in 1902. Of note is the symmetry and composition of the facade.
This monument is dedicated to musician Juli Garreta, made of stone its scenes show the artistic life of Garreta, it was created by the sculptor Enric Monjo Garriga (1896-1976) and was inaugurated in 1932. It is in the gardens that limit the boardwalk and beach.
Located in Juli Garreta Gradens,on the harbor side, this small tribute is dedicated to the founder of Catalan cinema, Fructuos Gelabert. The work dates from 1974, and the bucket on the pedestal, simulates a photo box with a space from which you can see the photo. The side piece has a face in relief.
La Rambla del Portalet is a small street with a wooded pedestrian area and two vehicular side streets. The street begins at the intersection of Paseo del Mar and Paseo dels Guixols, where the Casino La Constancia and Patxot House are, and ends almost where it begins perpendicular to Main Street towards Plaza del Mercado. The pedestrian zone has a pleasant terrace bar and banks.
