I Love Lloret de mar Biblioteca

I Love Lloret de mar Biblioteca...the municipal library, a futuristic new building in the centre of Lloret.
Opened in 2011 the biblioteca offers a calm and peaceful area in the heart of Llorets clubland.

Every morning they print off foreign language newspapers for anyone to read, holidaymakers of all nationalities are welcomed, as well as the obvious selection of Spanish and Catalan books there are computers for public use (register your passport at the desk) and FREE wifi throughout the building to use your own laptop.
The building is fully air conditioned and has a small cafeteria with a balcony for smokers.
 Part of the main building is dedicated to Llorets older generation with a large outdoor terrace, a cafeteria with a full bar at low low prices! an upstairs room with a large seating area and an outdoor balcony where you can watch the world go by..Its a vibrant, fun place and if you are 50+ have a seat, a cheap drink and enjoy!!!

I Love Lloret de mar Christmas: three kings

I Love Lloret de mar the Christmas three kings festival is still the main Xmas party for the vast majority of Spain, when the three kings (wise men) arrive on the 5th January in towns and cities all over the country.
The wise men Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar hand out sweets to children and there is a real party atmosphere as they parade through Lloret.
That evening, children leave milk and biscuits for the wise men and water for their camels next to the Christmas tree. They also leave out their best shoes in the hope they will be full of presents when they awake on the 6th January...wonderful traditions!.

I Love Lloret de mar Sant Romá church

Sant Romá Church is a magnificent building in the heart of old lloret
It was built as a refuge from Algerian and Turkish pirates attacks and was finished in 1522, the church had a major restoration in the early 20th century and now features Byzantine, Moorish, modernist and renaissance architecture.
Sant Romá is a quiet, calm space in bustling Lloret..very beautiful!
