Is what I read in my DK Eyewitness Travel Guide on Spain in the small writeup under Besalu in Catalunya ' with a striking approach across a fortified bridge over the Riu Flavia'. Though the picture included with the writeup didnt have the bridge in the picture - which was indeed excitingly impressive when approaching on the bus into the town - a visit here sounded an appealing option.
I arrived off the train from Blanes at Girona with about 20 minutes before departure of the bus, with departures hourly to 2 hourly, so for 6.70 euro return I took the opportunity to head 32 km, or 45minutes, north into lovely countryside.
With timetables at the bus stop arriving at Besalu I was able to plan for a 6 pm bus back to Girona giving me 2 hours to see the town.
