One of the last resorts of the Costa Brava (Wild Coast) before Barcelona, ??Blanes is a reflection of what many critics about this region: the mass tourism map at any price direction taken in the 1960s when Spanish authorities wanted to make attractive part of their Mediterranean coastline. The result is almost the same for various resorts in the area: Waterfront blocked by buildings, on-landscaped, tourist trap shops ... no need to say more. The beauty of the sea, clear and warm as on the coast and a small walk on the side of the hill overlooking the city, with the ruins of the castle of Sant Joan where a beautiful panorama offer, allow make up for it.
