Romanesque architecture is represented in many of the religious buildings in the little villages around the area , also in other civil buildings like the Castle-palace in La Bisbal d’Empordà .
Some ancient temples from the 9th C. are very well preserved , Sant Julià de Boada is a good example, and others which still preserve parts of the frescoes that decorated them in of Sant Esteve de Marenyà, Sant Miquel de Cruïlles or the later frescoes in Sant Pau de Fontclara .
Some temples like Sant Joan de Bedanga have a unique architecture, others perfectly combine two or three different styles , and this is visible in the church of Sant Esteve de Canapost where its medieval necropolis can be also visited.
The list of churches is endless and it can be increased by others which although not situated in the Empordà area, are deeply historically related . Some ancient monasteries like Saint-Genis-des-Fontaines with its splendid collection of capitals , or the amazing frescoes in Saint-Martin-de-Fenollar .
