The municipality of Solsona, has an area of 18 km². Solsona still maintains its main attractions, calm and rich historical and cultural heritage.
In the tenth century the current Solsona was born in the vicinity of the castle. And eight centuries later, the monumental bridge that leads to the main entrance of the city since then, the bridge portal, was built.
From the end of the 11th century until the 17th century, the cathedral was built, currently Gothic, which preserves the apse and the Romanesque bell tower. One of the jewels that are housed is the image of the Virgin of the Cloister -patrona of the city-, stone carving cataloged as one of the most significant sculptures of the universal Romanesque.
Among the steep and gloomy streets and the cozy places of the historic center, highlights the Plaza de San Joan, with a fountain of the fifteenth century and a temple of the eighteenth century.
However, the historical, cultural and natural springs of Solsona are not only impregnated in the stones and landscapes. And it is not possible to disassociate the capital of the Solsonès, the city with more giants and popular bestiary of Catalonia, of the manifestation of giants.
It is precisely in the amalgam of the rich heritage of the city and the festivals and popular activities where the idiosyncrasy of Solsona resides .
