Index card


The walk begins in Girona city, in the area of Sant Pere de Galligants, near Girona Cathedral, by the outer section of the wall.

Here the Benedictine monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants can be seen, one of the best examples of Catalan Romanesque art. The date when the monastery was founded is not known but textual references to it can be found since the end of the 10th century. In 1836 it was abandoned by the Benedictine monks, due to the enforcement of confiscation laws. Today it houses Girona´s Archaeology Museum of Catalonia.
