Torroella de Montgrí

Torroella de Montgrí is a former royal town located at the foot of the calcareous Montgrí Massif, surrounded by crop fields and vegetable gardens irrigated by the final stretches of the River Ter.

Torroella de Montgrí is a town in the Baix Empordà county, situated at the foot of the Montgrí Massif (302 m), 6 km from the coast and very near the River Ter that irrigates the surrounding plain. The main sources of wealth are agriculture, on the fertile plain lands, and commerce, as evidenced by the lively Monday morning market. Workshops and small businesses account for industrial activity of the area.

To stroll around Torroella is to stroll back in time. Look out for the remains of the old town walls: Santa Caterina gate and the Torre de les Bruixes; the gothic church of Sant Genís and the Montgrí Castle, small 11th century treasures; the 16th-17th century Casa Pastors and Casa del Metge on Carrer Major; and finally, the colonial houses built by successful emigrants returning from the Americas in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
