Banyoles is the capital of Pla de l'Estany, a flat region covered by a lake and flanked by the Rocacorba mountain range. The history of this region has always been linked to the waters of the lake, which has many attractions to visit: the gardens, the fishing boats and the paths close to the shore.

In addition the city has received the seal of Sports Tourism Destination, which guarantees its suitability for practising a variety of sports. Specifically, it has facilities and services for those who wish to practise rowing, kayaking, swimming, cycling and triathlon.

From an architectural point of view, worth noting is the historic quarter, with the Main square, the monastery of Sant Esteve, the church of Santa Maria dels Turers, the Pia Almoina and the Llotja del Tint, among others. In addition, there are two interesting museums: the Regional Archaeological Museum and the Darder Natural History Museum
