Very characteristic of Gerona are the houses hanging on the Oñar river. These picturesque houses built over the centuries by the river offer a splendid image of a small Mediterranean city. All river facades are painted following the color palette conferred by Enric Ansesa, Jaume Faixó and the architects J. Fuses and J. Viader.
Hanging Houses of Frías (Province of Burgos)
The houses, made of tufa and wood, have taken advantage of the small space offered by “La Muela”, a large rock on which the upper part of the city sits, so that they are built at the same ends of the rock, looking like that are part of the precipice. It is the example of an urbanism and architecture that adapts to the scarce land that the upper part of Frías has, which forces to develop the house both up and down, digging in the tuff rock, exceeding the usual number two floors. If the city is accessed from the south side we will have magnificent views of these hanging houses.
