In Sant Feliu de Guixols, in addition to the famous Benedictine monastery, the market square, the Rambla and the building of the Constancia casino, there is another attraction that is mostly known only to locals. It is about Pedralta rock, which until 1996 was the largest detached and freely swinging rock in Spain and the second largest in Europe.
In 1996, the strongest hurricane threw a rather big (about 80 tons!) “pebble” down. But the locals were able to lift it into place with the help of cranes, not forgetting to fix it securely. Now the stone does not swing, but all the same, residents are drawn here to admire it; here, not far from the stone itself, on the top of a nearby cliff, there is an observation point, from where there are wonderful views of the surrounding Vall d’Aro valley.
