Monumental set formed by Benedormiens Castle and the Church of Santa Maria. The castle, already documented in the 11th century, entered decadence in the 15th century after war. It has undergone successive reforms until its restoration in the 70s, which greatly modified the original aspect. It is currently a municipal exhibition hall.

The Art Fund of the Castle of Benedormiens has a collection of art works resulting from the exhibitions that have been organized in the castle from 1983 till today. This fund has a valuable collection of works by artists such as: Pitxot, Cuixart, Subirachs, Grau-Garriga, Medina-Campeny ... and other artists with a very special link with the municipality such as Malaret, Vilaseca, Bea and Navarro Vives.

The set formed by Castle of Benedormiens, the Church Square, the “Nina” (Doll) Museum, and the old town of Castell d'Aro was declared "Cultural Good of National Interest" in 1996. The Church of Santa Maria has a late Gothic style with Baroque facade. You can also visit the (Doll) Nina Museum, which has a collection of more than 800 dolls of all time periods and from all around the world.
