Besalu Bridge and Medieval City, in the province of Girona, is a monumental example of the Catalan Middle Ages. Cobbled streets and façades are the most distinguishable feature of the city centre, as can be seen in many spots. Civil architecture works include the 12th-century Romanesque bridge that crosses the Fluvià river; the building of Cùria Real, devoted to law enforcement; and the residence of Cornellà, with a great Romanesque arcaded gallery along with several churches.
Let their imaginations run wild
Step back into the medieval era and take a walk through an old castle. This place is fantastic if you are looking to go for a walk with the kids for a couple of hours. (though not pram friendly at all as the paths are all cobble stones). For a couple of euros you can purchase a foam sword and shield and the kids can act like knights. The castle is a maze of path everywhere and with very few cars around the kids can run around. We found there are plenty of maps around to show you where you are, directions etc. Food is everywhere if you are hungry and there are a few icecream places there too. There are many shops around which have some amazing toys for children and also items for adults.
Walking around the views are beautful and on a sunny day you can sit outside one of the little cafes and have a coffee and cake.
