Lloret de Mar is a great destination for archeology buffs where they can have a good time exploring ancient settlements. The fact is that several Iberian settlements have remained in the vicinity of the city - Puig de Castellet and Montbarbat. Perhaps this is one of the most atmospheric and impressive places in the Costa Brava - few others boast such antiquity. As is known, Iberians lived on the Iberian Peninsula long before the advent of the Romans. In addition to historicity, ancient settlements are also attractive for those looking for aesthetic enjoyment, offering fantastic views of the coast.
Another place where one can learn more about the history of Iberian rule in Lloret de Mar is Masia de Can Saragossa, on the ground floor of which there is an exhibition dedicated to the declining period of the ancient tribes. As for the building, it is worth a remark that it was erected before 1317 (the first written mention of the structure), after which it was reconstructed in the 15th and 17th centuries to become a family mansion in 1902, and Mañana Hotel in 1954. By 1984, the building becomes public property. When it comes to museums in Lloret de Mar, the Museo del Mar is of great interest. It has gathered a beautiful collection of exhibits, one way or another related to the local sea industry. In particular, visitors are delighted with its impressive ship model exposition.

Those who want to get acquainted with the life of residents' ancestors should visit Casa Museu Can Font where the late 19th-century interior has been recreated. The mansion's interior is remarkable for paintings hanging on the walls, paving and ceramic mosaics, as well as stained glass windows. Its neoclassical building dating back to 1877 is primarily interesting for its spectacular facade. The interior can be identified as Modern, which was popular at the time. Originally, it was a family mansion, which is evidenced by the anagrams N and F on the top floor. This is nothing but the initials of the first owner. For wonderful impressions from theatrical performances, concerts, exhibitions, and fairs, head to the Lloret Futur Concert Hall - of course, after checking out some upcoming events.
