El Frare (The friar)

This monument, inaugurated in 1958, was built to commemorate Joaquim Ruyra (1858-1939). The writer and poet found inspiration to create his literary works in his village house of Blanes. Ruyra also became a literary master for some writers such as Josep Pla or Salvador Espriu. The following quote belongs to him: “Al fons del meu cor Blanes és el país de l’estiu, de la llum i l’alegria”.
