Lloret de Mar Maritime Museum

Are you going on holidays to the Costa Brava and looking for some cultural activities?

This museum is made for you! Come and discover the history of Lloret de Mar and its inhabitants.

Lloret, city of the Mediterranean Sea

Before it became one of the top holiday destinations in Europe, Lloret de Mar was a seafaring town of sailors and merchants. Some of them, called “Indianos”, made their fortune in the Americas before enriching the town with splendid houses on their return.

Casa Garriga, which houses the Lloret de Mar Maritime Museum, bears witness to this former grandeur. Enric Mataro i Garriga had it built when he came back from Cuba, having made a fortune.

Built in the second half of the 19th century, it is one of the rare houses to have survived, along with the Casa Font or the Can Comadran.

Enter the seafaring history of Lloret del Mar

This publicmuseum was recently restored and its collections modernised.

Inside, dive into the historic past of Lloret de Mar! Throughout the visit, you will discover the strong bond between the town and the sea. The itinerary is based around 5 themes: Children of the sea, the Mediterranean Sea, the Gateway to the Ocean, Lloret after the sailboats and Beyond the beach.

These themes correspond to the principal stages in the history of Lloret de Mar and emphasise the role of fishing and trade with the Spanish colonies. An entire section is also devoted to the town’s return to fortune with the rise in mass tourism.
