Romanyà de la Selva1 or Romañá de la Selva2 (officially and in Catalan Romanyà de la Selva) is a population center of the municipality of Santa Cristina de Aro, in the region of Bajo Ampurdán, in the province of Gerona, Spain.
With 270 inhabitants in the year 2005, it consists of an old nucleus, formed by pairal houses, the rectory and the church of Sant Martí de Romanyà, its nave with a Greek cross plan dates from the 10th century and the bell tower from the 11th century.
Located in the heart of the Sierra de les Gavarres and about 6 km from Playa de Aro, in the center of the Costa Brava.
The old parish of Romanyá de la Selva was one of the four foundational parts of the current municipality of Santa Cristina de Aro, when it was segregated in 1808 from Castillo de Aro. Documented since 1019, the population was mainly dedicated to the exploitation of forest resources, to rainfed and irrigated crops – in addition to some sporadic vineyards – and, more secondarily, to livestock.
With the development of the Spanish economy, one of the rural owners undertook the creation of an urbanization of summer residences adjacent to the old Romanyá nucleus at the end of the 1960s. It took advantage of the great development of the tourist industry in the neighboring Costa Brava center and the growth of the demand for second vacation homes in the area.
