    10. The IDENTITY

    Sant Feliu is characterised by its peaceful population and its quality of life. We must point out the personality of the ganxons, how the inhabitants are called, which is cheerful, genuine and friendly.

    The town is full of identity, which we find in its special corners, like the local market. It provides fresh and quality products and offers a local trade in a welcoming atmosphere. We invite you to meet Sant Feliu inhabitants, while walking along the sea promenade or reaching the lighthouse and enjoying the views, the smell of the sea and the murmur of people. Do not miss the arrival of the fishing boats in the harbour early in the morning.
