To get to know S’Agaró and its most outstanding points at an architectural and landscape level, an itinerary has been adapted through information panels following the Ronda Way, one of the most visited places in the area. Its route offers wonderful views of the Costa Brava in all its splendor, which hundreds of people enjoy every day.

The objective of this itinerary is to connect all the aspects of this residential project through architecture, the geography of the environment, social and cultural life and its history, among others. One of the most emblematic points of interest is the monument commemorating of Josep Ensesa Gubert, located in the square of Mirador.

The option of group guided tours with prior reservation will also be available, organized by the Castell d’Aro-Platja d’Aro-S’Agaró City Council.

At the access to the exhibition circuit there is an explanatory panel with information about the route. Once the itinerary is completed in the Church of Nostra Senyora de l’Esperança, the tour ends inside the Hostal de La Gavina S’Agaró and the S’Agaró Hotel, where you can see the evolution and trajectory of these two tourist establishments in an exhibition..

Itinerary of the Ronda Way


Introduction to the exhibition

In 2024, we will celebrate the 100th of a grand dream, a project that has managed to establish and conserve S’Agaró as one of the most emblematic spots on the Costa Brava and one of the most internationally renowned tourist attractions.


Sant Pol Bay

S’Agaró has also experienced a great many sporting events. It all started with the promotion of the baths and the subsequent opening of the La Taberna del Mar restaurant.


Walkroute de Ronda

Documenting the development of the construction of the path, which has had to overcome orography full of stones and precipices.


“Senya Blanca". The first house

The first house was named “Senya Blanca” because it referred to the boats and fishermen who moved around this coast.


The cinema in S’Agaró

Beyond the cinematic legends that have visited S’Agaró and lodged in the Hostal de La Gavina, this setting has been the backdrop to great productions from around the world.


Josep Ensesa Gubert

S’Agaró has changed a lot from Ensesa and Masó´s initial project, but as preserved documentation has shown, its initial spirit has lived on.


Social and cultural life

Across these 100 years, S’Agaró has welcomed many famous people, both international and national, from all social and cultural backgrounds.


The most emblematic houses

Most of them are declared as assets of cultural interest. In most of the houses, you can see the influence of Catalan farmhouses with the use of elements from old farmhouses or their own architectural materials such as terracotta or ceramics.


Church of Ntra. Sra. de l´Esperança

The church was designed by Francesc Folguera and enshrined in 1942. Later, the interior was enriched with murals, which were the work of the landscape painter, Joan Colom.


Hostal de la Gavina S’Agaró

It opened its doors on January 2, 1932 and was part of the community houses, next to the sea. It is the beginning of the itinerary, where the exhibition “The Lighthouses of Tourism” has been installed.


S’Agaró Hotel

The architect was Pere Domènech i Roura, son of Lluís Domènech i Montaner. The itinerary ends, where the exhibition “The Lighthouses of Tourism” has been installed
