Swimming

Swimming also goes back a long way in the city, with the lake being a unique stage for practising it, which can be done in three public areas: the Caseta de Fusta, Banyoles Swimming Club and the Banys Vells.

With over 80 years of history, Banyoles Swimming Club has been the main driving force for the various sports linked to the lake. Athletes brought up in Banyoles have won important titles and have been Olympic competitors.

Every September there is also held the Lake Crossing, Banyoles´great swimming festival, organised since 1944. The race consists of crossing the lake lengthwise and over 2,00 swimmers from around Europe take part.
