On Monday we cycled along the promenade to L’Estartit and then along the cycle way to Torroella de Montgrí.
We had a swim en route. Well not all of us.
We had lunch close to the pretty main square.
These two matching houses were built by ‘los americanos’, Joan and Pere Maquès, two brothers who left L’Estartit in the early nineteenth century and returned to settle back in their home town together having made their fortune in Cuba.
The brothers paid for this clock tower to be built next to their houses, in 1878. Spot the longitude…only 12 minutes east…we are very close to the Greenwich meridian.
The surrealist painting is by Joan Fuster, a locally born painter.
