2008 has not been a productive year to me. Not as much free time to shot panoramas as I'd like...

But an amazing thing has happened. A litte publishing house has noticed my photos and proposed to publish them in a book about my city, Banyoles. This is one of them.

"La Placeta de la Font" (The Fountain Square) is of medieval origin and was for many years, the main square of the town. The "Pia Almoina" (Charity House), which delimits the south, was the town council headquarters from the Fourteenth Century to the beginning of the Twentieth Century.

Its current name comes from the installation of a fountain, in the Seventeenth Century, which brought water from outside of the city. The current fountain is from the Nineteenth Century.

This panorama contains two medieval buildings; "Can Mirambell" XV-XVI, with low porticats and formerly open and public (they were covered to avoid the traps of thieves), and the Pia Almoina (an example of the Catalan Civil Gothic style of architecture).
