History: A legend from the past

Legend has it that some Italian sailors carried the picture of Santa Reparada on board their ship to act as their guardian. Suddenly a storm approached and threatened to shipwreck their boat. The sailors, terrified, begged for Santa Reparada's help and made her a promise. They vowed, "If we are saved, we will build an altar for Santa Reparada wherever we find refuge." They ended up safely on the beach of Sa Riera, and they interpreted it as a sign from above: "This is the beach where Saint Reparada wants to remain." This was the beginning of the history of Hotel El Convent, our hotel in Begur .
