A day in Castelló d'Empúries

The largest double font in the world?
I rediscovered this blog post...I've been in southern France recently, with occasional forays into Catalonia - the north east Mediterranean corner of Spain. North of Barcelona I spent a few hours in the wonderful little medieval town of Castelló d'Empúries, just behind the mass tourist coast. It was a visual treat.

Walls of sulphur yellow

The spectacular doorway of the Romanesque Santa Maria de Castelló.

Doors and signs - the last a homage to Ovidi Montllor, Catalan singer and actor

And lunch...
