Parish Church of Sant Roma

Visit one of Lloret de Mar’s most recognizable landmarks, a surprisingly colorful church with an important place in the city’s history. 

The Parish Church of Sant Roma is one of the most striking buildings found in the center of Lloret de Mar. Dating back to the 16th century, this church continues to play an important role in local life and culture. The church’s bright modernist exterior belies an unexpectedly restrained, timeless interior. 

The church was originally constructed in 1522, replacing the older church, Mare de Déu de Les Alegries as the main church. During the early 16th century, Lloret de Mar was vulnerable to attacks by Turkish and Algerian pirates. As a result of this threat, the new church was strategically designed to serve as both a place of worship and as a safe house during raids. Notice the battlement-style loopholes and merlons that are incorporated into its architecture for added protection. 

The church underwent significant restoration at the beginning of the 20th century. Architect Bonaventura Conill i Montobbio drew inspiration from Muslim, Byzantine, and Renaissance styles to update the church’s Gothic façade. Most of the church was damaged during the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s, but the Capella del Santíssim (Chapel of the Holy Sacrament) remains remarkably well preserved and open for you to explore.

Admire the church’s distinct exterior, noticing the colorful tiles decorating its domes and turrets. Look for several beautiful mosaics that can be found in its courtyard. 

Although the church’s interior is modest compared to its eye-catching exterior, it does contain several gorgeous Venetian-style paintings. Once part of a multi-paneled altarpiece, the paintings depict Jesus Christ and the church’s patron saint, Sant Roma.

One of the best times to visit the church is during the Santa Cristina Day celebrations, which take place in July every year. Don’t miss the procession that begins at the church on the first morning of the festival.    

The Parish Church of Sant Roma is open daily from morning until evening, with a brief closure during the afternoon. A multilingual mass is held on Sunday mornings.
