A holiday opportunity
Are you looking for a holiday with a fragrance of old? Do you want to feel the taste of the crusades, the taste of the period when churches and monasteries started being built and the period of the Romanesque architecture? Well, if you are in Spain, you are in the right place. Those who are in search of such a thing can take a tour of the medieval towns and villages in Spain, especially those situated in the province of Girona.
Girona is a province in which the Gothic churches and the Romanesque castles still stand to remind us of past times in which history was forged by them. You can start the route by visiting Girona. After you do this, leave the town in order to head towards San Marti Vell. This is a charming small village well known in the area for its Gothic spire. La Bisbal should be next on the list. The town is worth visiting for its Jewish quarter, perhaps the oldest in the town, but also for its Main Square and the castle. This Romanesque castle is situated right in the middle of the town, giving it a romantic look.
Once you leave La Bisbal, you should not miss Palafrugell, Palau-sator, Sant Julia and Sant Feliu de Boada. They are all very important because of their medieval patrimony. Towards the end of your route, make a stop in Castello d'Empuries, which will impress you with its 13th century Gothic church and then visit Peralada. Angles is also outstanding through its medieval buildings; from Angles go back to Girona. The tour is a few kilometers long but it is worth the try. Besides the places that you visit - places of fantastic historical significance, you will also be amazed by the breathtaking landscapes.
Accommodation should be the last thing on your mind when taking this tour.
