There is also the cathedral, built in the XIVth century, which is famous for having the biggest gothic nave in the world.
In the north of the region there is Figueres, a big city where you can find the worldwide known Dalí Museum, dedicated to the surrealist painter Salvador Dalí.

L’ Estany de Sils is a protected natural place included in the PEIN (Pla d’Espais d’Interès Natural) of Catalonia and it has been included in the European net of natural places Nature 2000. Till the middle of the XIXth century, the lands of this place were a lagoon which was drained so as to obtain new crops and to fight against paludism.
Moreover, thanks to the special wet and flooding conditions, there are still some flora and fauna species typical from wet areas. During the last centuries, the natural flooding areas have almost disappeared and nowadays they are limited in Catalonia. Furthermore, in the Mediterranean area, the preservation of places such as Sils Lake has become very important.
