If you're heading to Figueres, make sure you make a stop in Vilabertran. The Canònica de Santa Maria de Vilabertran is an old Romanesque Augustinian monastery that was consecrated in the 12th century. The church, which in 1295 was the setting for the marriage between Jaume II of Aragó and Blanca d'Anjoy of Naples, is crowned with an imposing Lombardy-style tower; in the interior the standout feature is the gold and silver cross that is almost two metres high and dates from the 14th century. What's more, Santa Maria de Vilabertran is one of Catalonia's best-preserved examples of a medieval monastery.
