The Bridge, of course
The great landmark of Besalu is the Romanic Bridge over the Fluvia. The bridge was always of big srategic importance. it is not straight but changes the direction due to various rocks in the river which were used for the pillars.
Enjoy the mediaeval architecture
A nice general view of the town is from the opposite end of the famous bridge.
The town is full of nice corners, small streets and squares giving a nice impression what it looked like about 700 years ago in a great period of the Catalan history.
It is by the river Fluvia. But no much is left today. It is much better the synagogue in nearby Gerona.

Old buildings and streets, centuries unchanged
Stroll through interesting old streets. Off season you could almost feel to be more than 500 years back but I expect that this looks quite different under the Summer season.
The roman bridge built on the XII century, was constucted on the top of the rocks in the riverbed that is why has the angular form.
The city is very weel kept. it is a must see.
