Santa Cristina d'Aro

Province: Girona | Shire: Baix Empordà | Inhabitants: 5.067 | Extension: 67,6 Km2 | Altitude: 30 m

Santa Cristina de Aro is a municipality of the Baix Empordà, located in the Vall d'Aro and bounded by the Gavarres massif on the north and the Ardenya massif on the south. In addition to the center, Santa Cristina comprises the old nuclei of Romanyà de la Selva, Bell-lloc and Solius. In 1858 it was separated from Castell d'Aro, becoming the municipality of Santa Cristina de Aro.

The land is basically forest, with forests of pines, oaks and cork oaks. There are also areas of agricultural and industrial exploitation, but the main activity of the municipality is tourism, which is mainly concentrated in the summer months. The municipality has a good number of tourist infrastructures: horse riding, golf courses and other diverse leisure activities, such as: The Monastery of Solius that houses a unique collection of 39 dioramas; the Great Museum of Magic, Xevi collection, museum of illusion and curiosity where we will find the most important private collections, with international recognition, related to the world of magic and illusionism, Enrique Sacristán's private collection related to the world of lyrical genre known as Zarzuela, among other proposals.

The geographical location of Santa Cristina and the beauty of its surroundings make its places an ideal place to perform outdoor activities and enjoy intensely natural and heritage wealth. There are several hiking and cycling routes that are a must for the visitor. Among the most prominent are the Greenway, a bike path that follows the old route of the railway that went from Sant Feliu de Guíxols in Girona. Also the literary itinerary Rodoreda - Romanyá that brings us closer to the work of the writer Mercè Rodoreda and   It is a good way to combine hiking with culture. Santa Cristina de Aro is Megalithic land par excellence, both in the Ardenya and the Gavarres you will find archaeological remains of great heritage interest, the most important is the dolmen of the Cave of Daina, in Romanyà. Other elements to emphasize are the castle of Solius, of the medieval time, now already in ruins, the Gorges of Salenys and the Source Picante, among others.

Throughout the year, an extensive program of guided tours of discovery of the natural and cultural heritage of the municipality is offered.

Within the municipality, we find 3 coves of great beauty: Cala de Canyet, Cala del Señor Ramon and Cala Vallpresona.

In Santa Cristina several festivities are celebrated throughout the year. Among the most important, we find the Festival, around July 24, with several activities, one of the most outstanding, the Popular Race. The Carnival of the Friendship always gathers a good number of visitors to the population. Each nucleus also has its party: a Solius is the second half of May, in Bell-lloc, on August 15 and Romanyá, in mid-September.
