The monument Dona Marinera of Lloret, seafaring woman in English, is one of those essential places that you must visit during your holidays in Lloret de Mar.
This 2.40 meter sculpture, which stands on a rock and represents a female figure looking and greeting the sea, was created by the Catalan sculptor Ernest Maragall, son of the popular poet Joan Maragall. In 1966, the historian Esteve Fàbregas commissioned the monument of the Dona Marinera as a tribute to the town's fishing past. A bronze statue that symbolizes the women of the sailors who awaited the arrival of their husbands from the seashore. It also represents Lloret's Indian past, in which many people from Lloret of the time sailed to the other side of the Atlantic to make their fortune.
