Things to see in Pedreguer
Pedreguer has different points of interest that are worth visiting. The Mirabarques viewpoint was built in 1998, this viewpoint was built with the goal of sitting in the shade and gazing at the views. From here you can see the whole area, the Montgó, the sea and even Ibiza on the clearest days. Easily accessible, without a doubt a stop that you cannot skip if you are in the area.
The Hermitage of San Blas was built in the second half of the 18th century, the Hermitage of San Blas is a centralized place in a circular shape that is used for two of the local celebrations. The first is San Antonio Abad, which is celebrated on January 17. The second, of course, is San Blas, celebrated on February 3. If you are a lover of art and architecture it is a great option to visit.
The Church of the Holy Cross was built in the 15th century, the Church of the Holy Cross is one of the most important monuments in Pedreguer. They say it was built on an old Muslim mosque, but a Renaissance-style reform hides this fact. Later, in 1574, it had to be repaired, so the facade was in the Renaissance style, but the rest in the Baroque style. Thus we find a baroque interior with a Renaissance exterior. Something worth seeing if history, art and architecture are interesting to you.
The Big Mountain is the emblematic mountain of the town. In it, there are different mountain routes that you can enjoy and some of them have historical objectives, such as the route of “El castell de l’ocaive and les alqueries medievals”, reaching an old castle located on the mountain. Like this one, there are many more interesting routes in this area.
