Mediaeval villages in the Empordà

The villages are a living testimony to the passage of time. Following the trail from the mediaeval period through to today, passing through Jewish legacy, the Renaissance and Modernism, the mediaeval villages in the Empordà are home to a history waiting to be discovered, a past that has left first-class testimonies.

One of the most characteristic points of interest in the mediaeval city of Besalú is, without a doubt, the fortified mediaeval bridge over the river, the emblematic image of the town. The old centre of Pals is notable for its Torre de les Hores, a Romanesque circular tower. In Peratallada there is a very well preserved ancient fortified centre. Peralada, La Bisbal d’Empordà, Corçà and other villages along the coast and inland in the Baix Empordà will help you to discover the remains of a splendid mediaeval past.
