Visit the capital of the Solsonès region, the historic old centre, Episcopal palace and museum.
There are traces dating back to the Neolithic period but the actual town of Solsona was founded in the 10th century, around the area of the castle and monastery. The streets of the old town have a special charm. Many are named after saints, but others maintain the old name of the particular cottage industry which took place there centuries before.
You must visit:
Bridge entrance and walls
Sant Joan square
Episcopal palace and museum.
It is located by the cathedral and was constructed in the era of the Lasala bishop, from 1776-1779, by the Solsona house builder Francesc Pons, of whom it was said he could not read or write, but knew how to build a palace. Its main façade, next to the Virreina de Barcelona palace, is considered one of the best examples of Catalonian neoclassic design. Inside the Episcopal palace, guests can visit the Diocese and district museum containing many important works of art.
