The archaeological site of Castellum Fractum is a few kilometers north of Girona, on the little mountain of Sant Julia, 190 meters high. At his feet runs the river Ter an the ancient Roman Via Augusta route, now N-II. This largely explains the situation of this fortified Iberian settlement in the sixth century BC which was also occupied by the Romans until almost seventh century AD. The site is well signposted, you can see carved old silos, part of the walls and the foundations of huts carved into the rock along the slope. The views over the city of Girona and Ampurdan plain are excellent. A few meters from this ancient settlement is the church calle dels Sants Metges.
