The Monastery El Convent in Blanes was build in 1583, and since then, this historical building has been preserved as part of the cultural heritage due to its landscape interest. El Convent is located within an environment perfectly joined to the Punta de Santa Anna, which indicates the point where the Costa Brava begins.
Being near Barcelona (at 70 km), El Convent is open to the Mediterranean Sea, surrounded by the smell of the aromatic plants, and the centuries old pines in its gardens, it counts on with a spectacular view of the coast.
El Convent is a space absolutely unique, and exceptional to hold events and weddings near Barcelona, banquets, private celebrations or parties, and professional events or ceremonies, just as an outstanding location to shoot film productions in its exclusive spot in a cliff in front of the sea.
Since 2004, El Convent organizes the El Convent Classical Music Festival ("Festival de Música Clásica El Convent"), which takes place coinciding yearly with the International Competition of fireworks held in Blanes in the frame of the main festivity of this tourist town. During a week, El Convent is dressed up with those fireworks around.
