Besalú medieval bridge
In this town in the region of La Garrotxa, heritage is everywhere. The most emblematic site is the magnificent and much photographed Romanesque bridge. It invites Besalú's visitors to cross the River Fluvià before exploring its old streets. Built between the 11th and 12th centuries, the bridge has been restored or rebuilt several times after being damaged either because of the force of the waters or as a casualty of wars. Its angular structure is original, as is the walled tower in the middle of its 105 metres, where in the past anyone entering the town had to pay a toll.
