Puigcerdá in Girona (Catalonia)



The village of Puigcerdà, capital of the region of Cerdaña, located in a wide terrace that dominates the Segre river, is a significant commercial centre, having also excellent accommodations and services.

Bordering on France, and not far from Andorra, Puigcerdà is a town with many interesting monuments, such as the Gothic church of Santo Domingo, from the 15th century, with beautiful mural paintings; the Gothic belltower of the bygone church of Santa María; the arcaded main square, or Plaza Mayor; different ancestral homes; the City Hall, and the hospital. Another attraction is its artificial lake, surrounded by black poplars, which was built in the second half of the 13th century.
