One of the best ways to get to know Lloret de Mar is touring the center of the municipality, where the Church of Sant Romà (Plaça de l’Església, 4) is located, a spectacular Gothic-Modernist style church reformed by the Indians. It can be visited every day from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
