Sant Pere del Bosc
The sanctuary of Sant Pere del Bosc is a temple included in the Inventory of Architectural Heritage of Catalonia that has its origins in a hermitage of the XI century.
After several remodelling and enlargements, the sanctuary is nowadays an architectural complex divided in several areas with a predominance of Catalan modernist style.
The Neo-Gothic style church has a high belfry that stands out on first sight for its elongated shape and its roof tiles made of painted glass. Adjoined to the church, there is a building that was once the house of Nicolau Font, the most representative “indiano” in Lloret de Mar.
In the XIX century, Font spent a big amount of the money he earned while he was emigrated in America to build an asylum for people in need. For this purpose, he remodelled the old monastery of Sant Pere, adding the numerous buildings we can see nowadays, characterised by its arcs and large windows. The restaurant of the hotel is located in the ancient house of Nicolau Font, and in honour to him, it was named “L’Indià”.
All the facilities were remodelled under the direction of the famous modernist architect Josep Puig I Cadafalch, who also placed several monuments in the surroundings, such as the oratory of the Mare de Dèu, the Angel statue and the boundary cross.
