7. Passeig de l’Església

On reaching Passeig de l’Església, on the left-hand side we see the Palau lo Mirador, built between the 9th and the 14th centuries and restored in 1930, which was a residence of the local feudal lords and later of Catalan monarchs such as Joan I the Hunter. The mansion has passed through the hands of various owners including the Town Council and the Carles family, who intermarried with the Robert family and thus became the Counts of Torroella de Montgrí (1907). Further up the street on the right-hand side, a path leads to a square where you can admire a good stretch of the old town wall, recently restored. At the end of the Passeig is the Gothic Church of Sant Genís, which was commenced early in the 14th century and has a single nave, a polygonal apse and side chapels. We suggest that you go through the small gateway on the right-hand side as you leave the church and enter Plaça de l’Abat Oliva, where you can admire the church’s 18th-century Baroque façade. The unfinished bell tower is from the same country
