The sports centre has tracks adapted to different types of sport, for example, basketball, tennis or skating, as well as two swimming pools of different depths. But not only that, the same municipality has a Youth Centre, aimed for the young people between 16 and 26 years.
However, outside Sant Francesc there are also other interesting places, including the La Mola Lighthouse with its stunning views and the Estany des Peix, a beautiful lake that is open to the sea and near the Port of La Savina.
Although this place has been declared a biosphere reserve by Unesco, children can enjoy and bathe in its waters with total safety.
