Sant Grau Shrine

Accessible by the GI-682 road to Sant Feliu de Guíxols and after by the GIP-6821 to Llagostera

Distance from Tossa: 15 km.

The shrine’s history goes back to a popular legend on Saint Grau from Aurillac who seemed to have lived here during the 9th century. In the 13th century, Maria from Montpellier -mother of the Catalan King Jaume I, the Conqueror- obtained some relics of the Saint for this shrine.

The shrine of Sant Grau is one of Tossa’s iconic places and, every 13th October, the location of a popular fête champêtre.

The building has gone through many different construction and reconstruction periods, but it is worth mentioning the imposing semi-circular apse and the stained glass rose window.
