D’en Plaja Castle (Lloret de Mar, Catalonia)

A few days ago I decided to visit “La Cala dels Frares” (Inlet of the Monks) in Lloret de Mar. However, when I was there, the place was so overcrowded by other photographers that I only took a few photos before returning to Sa Caleta to capture some images of this curious castle on the beach before the sun was too high in the sky.

This building, situated at the end of the Sa Caleta beach, is in fact a house-castle built by Narcís Plaja, a Girona industrialist. The project, dating from 1935, was the work of the architect Isidor Bosch but was not completed until the 1940s, once the Spanish Civil War was over.
