Santa Cristina d'Aro (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈsantə kɾisˈtinə ˈðaɾu]) is a small town in the Aro valley (Baix Empordà region) at the junction of the road from Girona/Barcelona to Sant Feliu de Guíxols and Palamós. It is home to a number of workers in the nearby holiday resorts. The Costa Brava golf course is on the outskirts of the town.

Romanya de la Selva

Reviewed By roberty87 - London

Many tourists love the Costa Brava for its relatively unspoilt coastal villages, at least by comparison with the horrors of Benidorm or Torremolinos. But few venture inland to discover little gems like Romanya de la Selva.
With a few really classy restaurants, stunning views over the hillsides, particularly as the sun sinks in the West and an ancient burial site, the "Cova d'en Daina", just off the road to Calonge, this is a highly recommended detour.
Check out my reviews of the Can Roquet restaurant on the Placa de l'Esglesia for more inspiration. You won't regret it,.

Magic House, Col.leccio XEVI

Reviewed By cfer8395

We visited this museum with my family, and were so greatly pleased with the visit! We were not expecting to find such an outstanding place hidden in the middle of that peaceful countryside village.
Not only it is the largest museum of magic in the world, it also has an outstanding collection of 43 automats of the XIX and XX centuries (all fully working as the first day), and an impressive collection of artifacts, musical instruments, visual illusions, tarot and black magic stuff, stage magician devices, curiosities, antiques...
It is full of many little "treasures" collected by illusionist Xevi from all around the world, mostly linked to a variety of famous stage magicians and celebrities including Dalí and Pope John Paul II.
All in all, a visit worth the 5€ entrance fee!

Cova d' en Daina

Reviewed By WalkerTravelGroup - England

Ok, so it's rarity factor might make it worthwhile. Best to do as a round trip coming up from Cabanyes/Calonge, enjoying the twisting road up throughout the Gavarres where many cycle racers choose to train - stopping off at this attraction and then taking a left at Romanya de la Selva, checking out the seriously old village with Can Roquet restaurant and then working your way along the 'spine' of the mountain ridge of Mas Nou, watching out for potholes, past the beautiful golf course and Hapimag resort, back down to the C-31 and Platja D'Aro.
A road trip of perhaps an hour with stop offs.
A WARNING, not mentioned elsewhere - this Dolmen is also a pilgrimage place for mosquitos - hungry ones - so definitely take repellent!! You've been warned!!

La Santa Market

Reviewed By Maria19751231 - Sabadell, Spain

Zona de mercadillo con encanto, con paradas de ropa y complementos de todo tipo y precios, full trucks para cenar o tomar algo, actividades para grandes y pequeños, y conciertos. Es un tipo White Summer pero bastante más pequeño. Entrada gratuita. El aparcamiento es de pago 5€, pero si no quieres pagarlos pues toca buscar aparcamiento en la zona del Cementerio. Teniendo en cuenta q en la zona no hay nada parecido está muy bien para dar una vueltecita y tomar algo al aire libre con buen ambiente.

Bar Tipi

Reviewed By Just_Cristina - Girona, Spain

A parte del bar, Tipi Park ofrece piscina, padel, tenis, futbol y Minigolf, entre otros.
Yo fui a jugar una partida al Minigolf. Es muy económico, unos 3€ por persona. Son 23 hoyos en una zona tranquila, con árboles, césped... Algunos hoyos necesitan urgentemente un arreglo (ver fotos) pues están muy degradados. Aún así es una actividad familiar muy entretenida.
