The county town of Besalú constitutes a unique Jewish heritage site in Catalonia, with a 12th century mikveh (Jewish bath) and the remains of a 13th century synagogue. In 1966 Besalú was declared a national historic-artistic site. Since then, many finds have been made and much work has been done towards recovering this heritage. With its twisting mediaeval streets adapted to the city's orography, arches, steps, stone houses, the superb Romanesque bridge leading to the town centre over the waters of the Fluvià... Besalú still retains the charm of mediaeval times.
