Downtown Lloret de Mar in the evening is quite a sight. As the sun goes down and the bright neon lights turn on, when people start coming out for a walk in the refreshing air, after a whole day laying on the beach, showing off their tanned skins, the town irradiates energy that seems to emanate from it’s shiny glimmer.

After a while streets are quite full of people checking out places for dinner. There are many fast food restaurants to chose from, for all sort of tastes. Dutch, Italian, British, burgers, shoarma, you name it. All cheap places to suit everyones pockets.

There are all sort of souvenier and clothing shops too, which have everything you could need to gear you up in fashion, in case you didn’t bring enough spring clothes with you, and of course find your Lloret de Mar souveniers. Bikinis and swimsuites, t-shirts or dresses, shoes and boots, jewelry and art. There is so much to see and chose from it can be quite entertaining to go out shopping on its own.

Lloret de Mar is small and the streets, in spite of all being dressed up for the tourists and being built mostly in the seventies has managed still to keep a village feeling and with narrow streets closed to the traffic perfect for walking about. It has a few modernist buildings. The church is quite a sight, with some really interesting modernist tile work on it’s façade. Dating from 1509-1522 and gothic style, from transition to Renaissance. The altarpieces are paintings from the XVI century by the Catalan painter Pere Serafí known as lo Grec “the Greek” and Jaume Fontanet. A slab on the façade remembers the names of Bonaventura Leal Andreu and Martí Catalús Blanch, Lloret de Mar residents killed during the Spanish Civil War. Sit at the café at the plaza to contemplate the building and the people walking by. The space is closed to cars and you usually find kids running and playing about.
