La Bisbal d'Empordà
La Bisbal d'Empordà

La Bisbal d’Empordà is the capital of our district. The town lies alongside the River Daró at the foot of the Gavarres massif, and has a little over 10,679 inhabitants.

The town grew up around a splendid medieval nucleus, featuring the Jewish Quarter with its zigzag streets. The Castle-Palace is an extraordinary example of Catalan Romanesque civil architecture (11th C.). Another notable building is the Baroque church of Santa Maria, from the early 18th C. At various points of the town we can admire beautiful modernist buildings born out of the intense cultural and political activity that took place in the town in that period. On Fridays, the traditional weekly market occupies the whole of the old town.

But La Bisbal d’Empordà is particularly famous for its pottery. The extremely high quality of its red clay and the skill of its craftspeople have made La Bisbal the Catalan pottery capital. The Carrer de l’Aigüeta, the main street running through the town, is lined on both sides with countless shops, display rooms and workshops of hand-made pottery where you can buy all kinds of ceramic products. Every two years in the month of October the town holds the Hand-Made and Industrial Pottery Fair of La Bisbal. If you would like to learn more about this craft and its history in the town, don’t miss the Terracotta Museum of La Bisbal.

We must also mention the large number of shops selling high-quality antiques and curios. Another of the town’s famous products are its delicious bisbalenc pastries made in the local shops.
