Calonge-Sant Antoni
Calonge-Sant Antoni

Calonge stands on a rise among the last spurs of the Gavarres hills, and its territory extends as far as the sea, to the coastal nucleus of Sant Antoni, between Palamós and Platja d’Aro. The two nuclei, along with other small neighbourhoods and dispersed farmhouses, make up a total population of 10,851 inhabitants.

The town of Calonge grew up around the castle and the church of Sant Martí. The castle, of medieval origin, has undergone many alterations, the last in the 19th C., and around it there are interesting houses from the 16th to 18th C.

Sant Antoni offers a wide variety of tourism services, thanks to its 3.5-kilometre-long beach which hosts all kinds of activities during the summer months. The most popular of all is perhaps the Active Summer programme, organised by the tourist office and including many activities for children.

From Sant Antoni you can walk along the coast following the Shore Walk, either by yourselves or by joining one of the tours organised by the village. You can also visit interesting watchtowers like the Torre Valentina, and fortified farmhouses like the Castle of Torre Lloreta.

Entering the Gavarres, there are natural caves which were inhabited in prehistoric times, and an important series of megalithic tombs: the dolmen de Puig Sesforques, the menhirs of Ruas, and others.
