Casa Marcial has two buildings. The first one is catalogued and is of the late c. XIX and the early XX. It is in neo-classic style and notable for its facade and the 'alcoves' inside. The second building, with a new floor, is built on the remains of a medieval noble house from the first half of the c. XVII. It is located in the heart of the historic medieval town and the Jewish quarter, on the mound where the ancient castle of Counts of Besalú stood and around which the people of Roman times articulated their lives. In its gardens there are the remains of an X Century rampart, the apse of the Romanesque, collegiate church of Santa Maria, c. XII, and the rest of the ramparts, from the same era.

The Catalunia region

Situated in lower Garrotxa, straddling the regions of Pla de l’Estany and Alt Empordà, Besalú enjoys a privileged geographic location: +45 km. from the Pirineo Catalán ski slopes (Vallter, La Molina) and the best Costa Brava beaches (Rosas, Cadaqués...); +25 km. from Olot volcano area, as well as a few minutes from the prestigious golf courses (Torremirona, Perelada...); +25 km. from the Figueres and the Dali museum; +12 km. from the Banyoles lake, home of the Regata World Championships and the Olympic Games.

Besalu

Besalú is basically a medieval village. It was the capital of Besalú County (c. IX – c. XII) and welcomed an important Jewish community (c. IX – c. XV). A set of monuments are concentrated in a small space to bring out their former glory: the romantic bridge (c. XI); the romantic churches of San Pedro (c. X), San Vicente (c. X), Santa Maria (c. XII) and San Julián (c. XII); Jewish baths (Mikwe), the only ones in Spain (c. XII – c. XIII); Remains of the ramparts; Casa Llaudes (Romanesque civil); casa de la calle Tallaferro (Gothic style); Plaza Mayor Porticada...
