The Benedictine Monastery is the most important heritage site in the town. It preserves important features such as its 10th century Romanesque Porta Ferrada, which has become a symbol. Mare de Déu dels Àngels church and Fum and Corn towers are also part of the building, which houses the History Museum of the town, the exhibition about Health; and the temporal exhibition of Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Collection.
A via ferrata is a climbing route in a rocky massif, equipped with nails, steps, steel cables, chains and other materials that make the itinerary easy for people who don’t usually climb, both in vertical and horizontal sections. The mountains and the adventure can be enjoyed in a safe and exciting way. This activity is suitable for adults and children, beginners or climbers with experience.
Sant Feliu de Guíxols has important marine resources such as Cala Ametller, punta de Garbí and Cala Vigatà that are a paradise for scuba divers because of its ecologic richness. These places are included in the Bio-knowledge Marine Area in which we are working to combine a protected area and the tourism.
This project deals with two coastal marine areas that are included in the XarxaNatura 2000 Marina in order to promote and develop the seabed. They are managed by the Town Council by means of Custòdia Marina agreements and an active participation of the whole society.
Sant Feliu de Guíxols coast is full of contrasts. Rocky or sandy coves lay amid steep cliffs. From the south, coves and beaches like Canyerets, Cala Vigatà and Port Salvi must be pointed out, which extend up to the bay of Sant Feliu. To the north, Sant Pol beach still preserves the beauty of its 19th century buildings with clear, calm and shallow waters.
Also known as carril bici (cycle track), the greenway connects the town with the inland plains up to Girona and Olot. It is of great tourist interest because of the restoration of Sant Feliu old railway. Sant Feliu de Guíxols greenway is the starting point and the end of the old “Carrilet” that ran from Olot to our town. It’s ideal for cycling or hiking. You can go for a walk or take part in a race like the Trailwalker.
