At the Casa Marcial Hotel, in Besalú, we find a swimming pool with a design integrated into the surroundings of the medieval remains.
Before going to dinner you can stroll around the town and discover its heritage with the emblematic romanesque bridge, the synagogue and the micvé.
Also well-known are the monastery of San Pedro, the main square with its arcades and the church of San Vicenç. It is considered one of the most important medieval complexes in Catalonia.
