A town in the Alta Garrotxa spread out across the lower slopes of the Mont mountain range, a fantastic viewpoint from where you can see a large part of La Garrotxa ans a lot of the Empordà plain. Its Romanesque heritage is remarkable.

The route begins at Sant Pere de Lligordà, a12th-century church with a south-facing main door, a rectangular nave and a semi-circular apse. We continue on to Santa Maria de Palera, another 12th-century church with a semi-circular east-facing apse whose a nave is covered by a barrel-roof reinforced by two transversal arches. It was once home to a Gothic carved alabaster Mother of God, which today is to be found in the Girona Art Museum.

The next point of interest is Sant Sepulcre de Palera, a fascinating 11th-century Romanesque church that was consecrated in 1085. It has a central nave covered by a barrel-roof and aisles covered by half-barrel roofs, all supported by rectangular pillars and leading on to their corresponding apses.

Another attraction of this route is the 12th-century church of Sant Feliu de Beuda, well known for its valuable 12th-century font decorated with basrelief figures and blind arches. From here we continue to Santa Maria de Segueró, an 11-th century Romanesque church with a single nave and a polychrome image of the Virgin Mary (14th century) carved in alabaster.
