    Cala Estreta Hut, located on the cove, has its origins, at least, in the sixteenth century, when it is documented in a letter found in Villaromà Castle as belonging to its owner, Bernat Simon. The present building, recently remodeled, could be rather from the nineteenth century, and it is a living proof of an era in which human beings lived facing the sea, using their own resources for survival respectfully.
