Besalú Medieval 2014
From 30 to 31 of August of 2014
Villages with charm
Despite the multiple attractions – landscape, cuisine and its people – of La Garrotxa, there are some places in this comarca that have a truly unique air about them.
Keeping cool in La Garrotxa
The intense summer heat is an incentive to search for places to cool off, places where you can rest and at the same time get to know some of the other delights of La Garrotxa.
Medieval La Garrotxa
Castles and monasteries were at the centre of life in the Middle Ages. Although some of their splendour has waned, today La Garrotxa still maintains vestiges of that past in towns and villages such as Sant Joan les Fonts, Santa Pau and Besalú.
Besalú oozes history from every corner: every street, square and building provides clues to the town’s past and the people that have lived there through the centuries.
The Romanesque churches of Maià de ...
Maià de Montcal and Beuda are both good examples of La Garrotxa’s valuable cultural heritage and their wonderful Romanesque churches are the perfect excuse to visit this part of La Garrotxa.
