Albanyà


Albanyà

Albanyà is a village situated in the north-west end of the Alt Empordà region. It is particularly located in the upper valley of the river Muga, in the Pyrennean lands that are in contact with the Alta Garrotxa.

The attractive urban core of Albanyà is still centered on San Pedro’s church, an interesting example of early Romanesque. Inside you can find a Romanesque-Gothic carved tombstone, which comes from Carbonils’ church, located in the same village.

The large current limit of the municipality extends to a very rugged landscape, characterized by high mountain crests with steep cliffs and deep ravines. It is a surrounding area, which is identified and emphasized by the lofty and peculiar silouettes of El Mont and Bassegoda peaks, so familiar to the inhabitants of the whole Empordà and La Garrotxa.
