We went off to both Girona and Besalú!
WONDERFUL day. Here's some pics:
This is what is left of a fireplace in Girona, somehow, I loved it.
According to Eldest, who did a class trip here which she apparently remembers verbatum, this statue on the side of Girona Cathedral is known as the witch and is the likeness of an old woman who came and berated the men working on the building of the cathedral at some time. Now she's famous!
A little fish carved into a railing near the cathedral.
Besalú is a tiny medieval town that used to once be the same size as Girona, but didn't really grow all that much. The new photo on my header is the most notable example of the bridge there. They also have a mikvah, the oldest one in Spain, and was an amazing find when they came across it. Sadly it was closed when we were there.
A view of the town from the bridge.
A fragment of stonework, I can only assume it is real, but maybe not.
The town was full of these little stone walkways.
The three arches. A number of the narrower pathways had arches between the bulging buildings, this one was quite lovely too.
