Campllong

Province: Girona | Shire: Gironès | Inhabitants: 535 | Extension: 8,6 Km2 | Altitude: 113 m

Campllong is a municipality in the Gironès region located to the south of the city of Girona. The settlement is scattered in the town of Campllong, head of the municipality, and in numerous neighborhoods (Can Bosc, Can Canyet, Can Dionís, Can Falgueres, La Bruguera and Ferreries).

The urban nucleus of Campllong is located in the southern part of the term. There are several houses around the parish church of Sant Quirze, documented in 1362. The current building is from the 16th and 17th centuries. Within the term there are some farmhouses of interest, among which the Torre Llupiana stands out, fortified, with a patio and sentry boxes, in a good state of conservation. The Rectory is another building of interest, from the 18th century and with the appearance of a typical recently restored farmhouse, where the municipal offices are located as well as the rectory.

Campolongum appears in the first documentary citation that we know of and which dates from 899. The Catalan Dictionary attributes Campu-longues as coming from Latin. The place name seems to be originated by the long extension of the term, which forms fields of great amplitude and length. Documents from the year 922 mention Camlong, and the church of Campolongo is mentioned in 1279-80.

The consequences that the Great War left in the Catalan territory created a climate of rebellion against the French, aggravated by the subsistence crisis that occurred. The lack of wheat to supply the urban population affected Girona, which was forced to ask for help from rural towns. In August 1650, they asked Campllong for wheat supplies, but the town's response was negative, alleging that the vintage was scarce and they could hardly cover the local population. In 1609 Campllong was a royal place.

During the War of Independence these lands were severely punished. The church was burned down and served as a fortress.

Campllong is located in a space of passage located next to the sea and the mountains, which welcomes and caresses rural towns with different and emblematic charms.

It is undoubtedly an ideal inland destination for those who want to enjoy the tranquility of the countryside and discover the essence of the rural world and traditional gastronomy.

A land for a walk that invites you to discover it on foot or by bike to discover its natural and gastronomic wealth.
