Girona Monuments

Visitors are offered the essence of a millenary past, taking them into a magical world of unique religious, civil and military constructions. Visitors should not miss visiting the monasteries of Sant Pere de Rodes, Sant Joan de les Abadesses, Santa Maria de Ripoll and Sant Feliu de Guíxols, the church of Sant Cristòfor in Beget, and the churches of Llanars, Molló, Santa Maria de Porqueres and Santa Maria de Vilabertran. Not to forget the historic centres of Girona, Santa Pau and Besalú.

The thread of history goes on to offer us a valuable legacy in the shape of remarkable buildings such as the church of Santa Maria, in Castelló d'Empúries, known as the "Empordà cathedral"; the convent of Sant Domènec, the cathedral and some of the buildings in the old quarter of Girona,- the castle and the Carmelite convent in Peralada; the parish church and Montgrí castle, in Torroella de Montgrí, and the town centres of Pals, Peratallada and Sant Martí d'Empúries, amongst many others.

This artistic current bears witness to the exquisite sensibility of the society from which it arose, with examples in some of the altarpieces in Girona cathedral and the parish churches of Cadaqués, Palamós and Lloret de Mar; then there are imposing buildings such as the Roses citadel or the Carmelite convent and the Hospital of Sant Jaume in Olot, to name just a few examples.

One of the jewels of Catalan architecture, which in the Girona province can offer buildings as noteworthy as the Cusí and Salleras houses in Figueres, the Serinyena house in Cadaqués, the Casino dels Nois in Sant Feliu de Guíxols, the Armstrong cork factory in Palafrugell, the Masramon and SW Morales houses in Olot, the Masó and Ensesa houses and the La Punxa building in Girona, the Vichy Catalán spa in Caldes de Malavella, the Bonada and Sant Miquel de la Roqueta houses in Ripoll, and the Casal in Camprodon.
