Thanks to the numerous and newly built streets you get very fast to the sleepy hinterland of the Costa Brava. The landmark of Besalú is Pont Fortificat, a roman bridge from the 11th century with its two massive towers and the bold bend in the middle. In the Middle Ages they charged tariffs from travellers for passing the bridge. Today you get freely into town. In the quarter El Call you can find traces of the Jewish people who lived there until the end of the 15th century.
In the centre of Besalú there is the church of Sant Pere. Opposite of it there is the church of a destroyed monastery of St Benedict from the 11th century. In the streets you can find little junk shops, fruit and vegetable stores and a grocery store which looks like it is from a different century. There are of course many cafés, little restaurants and numerous hotels, historic façades, elegant archways, artistic windows and churches: the church Sant Vincenç, the collegiate church Santa Maria and the church St. Martí.
In 1966 Besalú was declared to a historic national unit ("conjunto histórico artistico"). Each year at the first week-end in September there is a big medieval festival with costumes and medieval performances.
Besalú is part of the "Garrotxa" and is situated on the verge of the Zona Volcànica de la Garrotxa. This nature reserve with about 30 to 160 m high basalt cones, more than 20 lava fields and craters is a impressive vulcano landscape, which is a great attraction for trips and hikes.
