Torroella de Montgri

The nucleus of the old town can be traced back to Roman times and the XIII & XIV centuries, it is a beautifully classic example of the Roman influence in the region.

The old town is surrounded by walkways that follow the ancient town walls, of which some of the original remains have been preserved: La Torre de les Bruixes (the Witches Tower) (XV-XVI) is the source of many popular legends, including one in which some witches stopped the right of passage of a Catalonian King. The ancient walls also guard the remnants to the doorway of Santa Caterina (XIV), one of six entrances to the ancient wall which is still in preservation today.

The four axes of the old town are carrer d 'Ullà, carrer Primitiu Artigas, carrer Major and carrer de l’Església. These four streets join in Plaça de la Vila (Town Square), a portico style square very thoughtfully constructed of irregular proportions. The facade of the Town Hall dates back to the 15th-16th century and houses a large and impressive Sundial. Carrer Major and Carrer Església contain some of the most valuable buildings in the old town also dating back to the 15th & 16th century. Houses such as Casa Hospital, Casa Pastors, Sastregener, the admirable palace, Palau Solterra and casa Sagué, among others, as well as two French colonial style buildings of high architectural importance. The Passeig de l ' Església is bordered by the Palau del Comte de Torroella (palace of the Count of Torroella (IX-XIV), also known as El Palau Mirador (El Mirador Palace), which has been restored as a luxury hotel and restaurant.

The old town also contains important commercial streets such as: carrer d’Ullà, carrer Sant Agustí and Porta Nova.
