A town in the region of Garrotxa, standing at a height of 150 m. and as its name indicates, it was a fortress between two rivers. In 1966 due to its architectural value, it was declared a “National Historical Artistic site.”
In every corner, and every street we sense the medieval atmosphere that makes it peculiar. It can be considered the best preserved of all the elements from that time, as well as the monasteries, churches, façades, Jewry and especially the Miqvé.
Worth mentioning is the Roman bridge over the river Fluvià, of extraordinary beauty, which opens the doors to Besalú.
