What Our Students Say

Medieval Music Besalú has been, by far, the best musical experience of my life. I discovered the course by chance and there is not a single day when I am not grateful to have found it, because the fruits that are sown here accompany you forever. Not only the teaching team is top notch, but the training offer is unique in the world and the audience is very high level. Music flows through every corner of this beautiful town and the intensity, the good atmosphere and the good times will make you take a medieval family for life. I will repeat this year for the third time in a row and as many as I can in the future. Without a doubt, Medieval Music Besalú has won my heart.
