La Selva de Mar, an old village situated close to the mountains, only two kilometres away from Port de la Selva. It is common knowledge here that Port de la Selva once belonged to the medieval village La Selva del Mar. Back then, the beach was empty, except for a few cottages, where the fishers kept their belongings and materials. By and by, a new village formed around the harbour. In 1725, the first church was built, and in 1781, the village became independent by a decree from King Carlos III.
The enchantment of times now long gone by is still alive in the old village and its cloister Sant Pere de Rodes. A long time ago, people used to make a living by growing wine and olives, or by fishing. Today, the fully restored stone houses are used as holiday homes or small restaurants.
