Monumental Heritage

The Costa Brava and its surrounding areas offer one a wide range of monumental sites and medieval villages worth visiting. The city of Girona is a “must be seen” where one should visit its cathedral with the world’s largest Gothic nave, the Church of Sant Feliu, the monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants, the Jewish quarter, the Sant Domènec Historical Monument, the Carolingian Wall and the buildings by the Modernist architect, Rafael Masó, a contemporary of Gaudi. For those interested in archaeology a visit to the Iberian settlement of Ullastret and the Greek and Roman Ruins of Empúries is a must. If you particularly like medieval towns you should visit Vilabertran, Peralada and the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes in the northern area, or the town of Besalú just a few kilometres from Girona, together with the picturesque villages of Pals, Monells, Palau Sator and Peratallada in the Baix Empordà region or the old town of Tossa in the southern area.
