Sant Pere del Bosc
Sant Pere del Bosc will amaze you with its mysterious location. As you climb the mountain, you’ll spot the building’s central tower between the trees that surround the former monastery.
Located 5 km from the centre of Lloret de Mar and surrounded by nature is the Sant Pere del Bosc hotel and restaurant, a restored Benedictine monastery constructed in the 10th century and rebuilt by Puig i Cadafalch in the 19th century.
This former Benedictine monastery, founded in the 10th century, became the property of Nicolau Font i Maig, owner of Can Font, in 1855. At that time, the monastery had been included as part of the Madoz confiscation program and put to auction. Although the townspeople of Lloret de Mar had been putting together a community fund to purchase it, they did not manage to collect enough money.
Agustí Font, then mayor of Lloret de Mar and cousin of Nicolau Font, decided to look for a solution and contacted Nicolau, who was living in Cuba at the time and had amassed a large fortune. He explained the situation to him and managed to convince Nicolau to send him the necessary funds. Agustí thus purchased the property in his name.
When Nicolau Font returned from his American adventure, he decided to convert the monastery into a hospital and expand it by hiring renowned architect Puig i Cadafalch.
The building is now private property and houses a hotel and restaurant.
