Girona

A magnificent old town

Torroella de Montgrí is six kilometres from the sea, and its old town is surrounded by walks following the old Roman defensive wall, remains of which can still be seen. Special mention should be made of Les Bruixes Tower (15th-16th centuries) and Santa Caterina Gate (14th century). Sant Genís Church is a gem of Gothic architecture and should not be missed on a visit to the village. Also outstanding is the Romanesque Sant Antoni Chapel, set in the porticoed Plaça de la Vila Square. Also in this square you will find Casa de la Vila House (15th-16th centuries), with its big sun dial. On Paseo de l'Església Avenue you will find El Mirador Palace (9th-14th centuries), which has been restored and is currently home to a luxury hotel. The village hosts an International Music Festival, along with seasons of live jazz in July and August.
