Medieval Besalú

Dates: 1st Weekend of September 

  • Turisme Garrotxa

On the first weekend in September, Besalú goes back a thousand years in history and transforms the old quarter into a fantasy venue where visitors are transported back to medieval times. 

The value of this historical and architectural site makes Besalú one of the most important mediaeval towns in Catalonia. The 2-day fair involves all the townspeople, as well as the streets, shops, buildings, river walk, defence walls, squares, and hidden corners of the town.

The fair has become an annual event, attracting thousands of people, who flock into Besalú to enjoy the magic atmosphere of this major production involving both the local authorities and over one hundred volunteers.
