La Bisbal d'Empordà Guide | Costa Brava


La Bisbal d'Empordà

La Bisbal d’Empordà, chief town of the Baix Empordà region, is a quiet town that lies peacefully on the plain of the River Daró.

The town boasts a multitude of second-hand and antique stores as well as a long-standing pottery tradition with its own brand: red clay with blue, green and yellow finishes. Known as the Catalan pottery capital, it is home to a prestigious school, many craft workshops open to the public (along Carrer de l’Aigüeta) and the Terracotta.

The former castle-palace of the bishops of Girona is a magnificent example of Catalan civil Romanesque architecture. The Baroque Church
of Santa Maria has conserved two interesting pagan figures: the Dragon and the Eagle.

La Bisbal is also famous for its delicious pastries (try the bisbalencs, puff pastry filled with sweet pumpkin preserve and covered with pine nuts) and pleasant strolls (along the medieval bridge over the River Daró or through Les Voltes, a group of houses dating from 1800).
