Photo of Castle of Sant Joan in Blanes

The castle stands at the top of the mountain of the same name at 172 metres, offering a magnificent view of the whole of Blanes and the neighbouring villages. The structure of the castle consists of a cylindrical tower of 15 metres surrounded by a moat and a rectangular walled area. Documented as early as 1002, it was called Forcadell. It was clearly designed to defend the Viscounty town from the dangers that arrived by sea.
