Comments:  Lloret is an excellent town in Costa Brava, near Barcelona and Girona, for teams of a vast range of sports to do their trainings. Lloret has always been one of the most popular holiday resorts in Spain and now is focusing on sport tourism, with new state-of-the-art facilities. The municipal Olympic pool is perfect for swimming teams and, although it was opened in 2014, it is already hosting tournaments and competitions. The athletics tracks are located right next to the pool. And other sport facilities are also near. Another plus point is Mediterranean climate, with an average temperature of 9ºC (48º F) in Winter and 24ºC (75 ºF) in Summer. In short, a good choice.
