Sant Esteve Monastery and Casket of St Martirà

The monastery of Sant Esteve is the original site of the city of Banyoles and preserves different architectural styles due to the various acts of destruction and reconstruction it has undergone over the centuries.

Its interior contains the Gothic altarpiece of Nostra Senyora de l’Escala (15th century) and the Casket of Sant Martirià (15th century).

The interior of the church and the cloisters are visited with a guided tour that can be arranged with the Archaeological Museum.
