Girona has everything you would wish for; Roman, Carolingian, Moorish. Gothic, Baroque and Modernist buildings galore. You can walk on the extensive medieval city walls from which there are excellent views over the city.
The Jews lived in Gerona from 982 to 1492 and the Jewish quarter, El Call, is a maze of narrow cobbled streets. The quarter is one of the best preserved in the world.
Gustav Eiffel built a bridge across the Onyar River before he ever built the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The Onyar, flanked by ancient buildings, flows through the city and is spanned by several bridges.
The cathedral in Girona is magnificent, reached by seemingly countless steps. If you are a game of thrones fan, then you will find much to look at and recognise, as this was the city of Braavos in season six of the film.
But most of all, simply wander through the narrow streets and visit the many quaint,owner managed little shops, stop for a coffee or snack in one of the many squares and alleys and just revel in the atmosphere of this very special city.
If you are interested in the food scene then there are three Michelin starred restaurants in Girona, the very famous El Celler de Can Roca, the Massana and the Divinum. The Roca brothers also own the Casa Cacao 15 room, 5-star, boutique hotel in the historic centre of the city which we also feature.
We include a private guided walking tour of the city with every booking. A must is a visit to the Dali Museum in Figueres which is a 45-minute drive away and the AVE high speed train can take you to Barcelona for the day in 40 minutes.
