Santa Cristina d’Aro

The charming town of Santa Cristina d’Aro is situated in the Aro Valley on the Costa Brava in the Catalonian province of Girona. The French border is just 92 kilometres from the town and Barcelona 99 kilometres.

Boasting a privileged location, Santa Cristina d’Aro is situated just six kilometres inland from the beautiful coastline and beaches of the S’Agaro and Platja d’Aro. The region is also an excellent destination for walking and hiking holidays.

About town
Santa Cristina d’Aro is a traditinal town with many interesting cultural and historic attractions. Of special interest is the tourist office itself, which is located in the former Carrilet station. The Carrilet was a mini gauge train that joined the local region to the city of Girona.

There are ample amenities in town for holidaymakers, with a supermarket, shops and several bars and restaurants. For further options you can head to the larger coastal towns, which are situated close by.

Places to visit

There are several interesting archaeological sites and caves in the local region, some dating back to the Neolithic age. Cultural monuments include the ruins of the Solius Castle, Solius Cistercian Monastery and the Sant Martí de Romanyà Church, which pre-dates the Roman era.

Beaches

The local coastline with its typical Catalonian resorts is a delight to visit. It’s one of the prettiest spots on the Costa Brava. To reach the pretty bays and coves visitors should head to Sant Feliu de Guixols and from there head to Cala (Bay) Canyet, which is the beach to head to if you want to partake in water sports.

Further along is the Bay Senyor Ramon, where you will find showers and a kiosk and the unspoilt Bay Vallpresona is reached on foot, and here you will find nothing but a beautiful beach and crystal clear waters, so take a pack lunch and plenty of water!

Active Tourism
If you are seeking a destination from which you can head off into the great outdoors and partake in some outdoor activities then Santa Cristina d’Aro is an excellent choice. The town is surrounding by mountains, beautiful countryside and a stunning coastline. From the town you can head off along local natural routes by bike, horse or foot.

Local gastronomy
Santa Cristina d’Aro is well known for its delicious gastronomy; utilising the excellent local produce from both sea and land, the town delivers some excellent and unique dishes. The town is famous for its wild mushrooms, which are harvested through October and November.

Climate
In Santa Cristina d’Aro mild winter merges into blossoming spring which in turn gives way to a seemingly endless sunny summer the eventually yields to an autumn of mellow fruitfulness.

Santa Cristina d'Aro review

Only visited to stock up on supplies at the supermarket, but seemed like a nice provincial town. Further afield, nice beaches at Sant Pol and places to visit further up the coast.


Costa Brava reviews

The bits we visited all felt very Spanish (a good thing!) - local beaches, Rosamar, Llafranc and Begur.

Santa Cristina d'Aro review

Niet super veel te beleven, je moet echt even door rijden naar andere plaatsen. Maar omdat je toch moet rijden is dat niet echt erg en ook geen verrassing. Er is wel een bakker, supermarkt en benzinestation.

Santa Cristina d'Aro review

The town has everything you need for buying every day goods. Platja d'Aro and Sant Feliu de Guíxols are very close for good restaurants.


Costa Brava reviews

Just the right mixture of nice beaches and mountain landscape.

Santa Cristina d'Aro review

La ville en elle-même n'a rien de particulièrement attrayant Le mois de janvier est assez morne


Costa Brava reviews

De jolies criques, mais la densification immobilière, pas toujours de très bon gout gâche vraiment le paysage
