Terramar

 

The site could not be better

The history of tourism on the Catalan coast could be summed up by the scars left behind by the Hotel Terramar.  An original structure from the Belle Époque, intended to be an exclusive hotel for the first travellers, expanded later in the 60s to become an unrecognisable monstrosity designed for mass tourism. 

 

The complete update of the Terramar has tried to bring a third life to it - rethinking how tourism is understood today, in an exercise of simplification, order and unification.
