Houses of Girona
The Houses on the banks of the river Onyar are located
at the very edge of the river and the bridges which span it, are
one of the most authentic and spectacular sights of Girona.
These buildings overlooking the river were constructed towards the end of the Middle ages, and were attached to the walls which enclosed the ancient quartier and the borough of the Mercadal.
The towers protecting both sides of the bridges also succumbed to modern times and were converted into dwellings.
