Banyoles is strongly associated with the lake that bears its name. History and life in this town in Pla de l'Estany has always revolved around this spectacular phenomenon of nature. You can enjoy the lake area in lots of different ways, whether walking, pedalling or rowing. But take your time and keep your eyes wide open to capture the beauty of spots such as La Puda or Les Estunes, listening to the wonderful singing of the birds that live there. Once you've absorbed all the energy of the lake, enter the town's old quarter and explore mediaeval Banyoles. Because Banyoles is much more than a lake.
