The huge castle from the 13th century in the middle of the public place is dominating Santa Pau even from the distance. The historic city centre of Santa Pau groups around the squarely compiled castle. The wide town square is characterized by irregular and differently high arcades and portrays a medieval ensemble with great beauty in a certain building. Beneath the arcades the tourism office and little restaurant are hiding.
Surprisingly, a small metal sculpture lies about the monstrous stone wall of the castle. Such lovely details enchant. Blossoms grow upon many balconies, and containers are standing in the valleys. The Gothic Church of the village is from the 16th century. Gardens and meadows extend over the village up to the stream. Here, a path has been built.

Sant Pau wins over with its well-kept medieval architecture and is worth a stop. The romantic construction shows a great past.
