Benedormiens Castle: This castle has a long history dating back to the 11th century.

So much so in fact, that it is now used as a modern art gallery and has housed works by famous names such Salvador Dali (a local of the Costa Brava area) and Navarro Vives.
Vila de Pla de Pal Ol: This Roman excavation site dates back to the 1st century BC, and the large villa indicates signs that Platja d’Aro was used for farming, producing wine and exporting clay.
