Bellcaire d'Empordà
Bellcaire d'Empordà

Like most of the villages of the Empordanese plain, Bellcaire sits on top of a small hill overlooking the plain which, to the north, was once occupied by the enormous lake of the same name. Like many others in the Empordà, it was drained in the mid-18th century in order for the land to be cultivated.

In its upper part, Bellcaire conserves the medieval castle built in the late 13th C. by the Counts of Empúries as a strategic outpost against the domains of the Catalan crown in Torroella de Montgrí and Albons. The castle has now been declared a National Historical Monument by the Government of Catalonia. Every year, this incomparable setting serves as the stage for the epic play Bandera de Catalunya, in which a large number of residents of the village take part.

The Romanesque church of Sant Joan de Bellcaire conserves various testimonies of its various periods and styles: Paleochristian, pre-Romanesque, Romanesque and Gothic.

The village is crossed by the old mill stream, now used for irrigating the fields and which in the past powered the area’s mills and mainly Bellcaire’s.
