Church of Sant Esteve (Peratallada, Catalonia)

A few days ago I was visiting some medieval towns in the Girona province. My first stop was in Peratallada, a fortified town where most of the buildings were built from the stone carved from the fosse or moat which still encircles the village. I was afraid to miss the sunrise but I arrived just in time to photograph the sun rising from behind the 13th-century church dedicated to Sant Esteve (Saint Stephen) outside the town walls.

If you ever visit Girona you cannot not miss a travel to Peratallada, and other medieval towns in the region like Pals and Monells. I’m completely sure that you will enjoy them; walking around the well preserved streets of these towns is like being transported to another time.
