Santa Cristina d’Aro has around 4,400 inhabitants. The nucleus of population lies in the Aro valley and its territory extends to the north towards the Gavarres Hills and to the south towards L’Ardenya and the sea.

This hilly part of the municipal district has a large number of very interesting megalithic tombs.

The old centre of Santa Cristina d’Aro has grown around the parish church. The village’s buildings include interesting mansions and fortified farmhouses.

The municipal district also includes the nuclei of Bell-lloc, Romanyà de la Selva and Solius, most of whose inhabitants live in dispersed farmhouses. Close to Santa Cristina you will find the Romanesque church of Santa Maria de Bell-lloc (10th C.) Nestling in the Gavarres, the village of Romanyà is situated on a rise with an excellent panoramic view of the Aro Valley, in a place where time seems to have stood still. Among the old houses from the 17th and 18th C. there rises the small church of Sant Martí, in a late pre-Romanesque style. Near the village you can visit the Cova d’en Daina, an extremely interesting megalithic burial chamber.

In Solius stands the 18th-C. church of Santa Agnès, and nearby, half-hidden by the woods, is the chapel of Sant Baldir
