The population of Lloret de Mar has inherited an important historical, cultural and social legacy from the Indianos, people from Lloret who left for the Americas and returned with great fortune. On June 16, 17 and 18, the Fair of the Americans will be held in Lloret de Mar, dedicated to the Indian past of the town of Lloret de Mar.
This activity is organized by the Department of Economic Promotion of the Lloret de Mar City Council and included in the programming of the Capital of Catalan Culture Lloret 2023.
At the end of the 18th century, a good part of the population of Lloret de Mar began to emigrate to Cuba, Puerto Rico, Brazil and Argentina in search of new opportunities. These inhabitants of Lloret de Mar, called “Indianos” or “Americanos” (Americans), lived and worked for years without losing contact with their families.
Some returned to Lloret de Mar with the fortune they had come looking for. With that wealth, they built different mansions on the seafront and even contributed to an urban transformation of the population.
