Tourism in Girona

Girona

It’s a town near Barcelona, nestled between the sea and mountains. It has a privileged location.

Its old town is one of the most evocative historical centers in Catalonia, with unique things in Europe like the Carolingian wall or the Jewish quarter. The bridges over the river Onyar are the accesses to the oldest part of town. It contains the Cathedral and Sant Feliu’s church. The elegant Romanesque buildings such as the ancient monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants or the Arab baths give a special feeling to the city.

A constant reference skyline is the image of the Cathedral, which has the widest Gothic nave in Europe. It stands beside one of the most unique, the Call, the old Jewish quarter.

It is built with different styles (XI-XVII), retains elements of the first Romanesque building (cloister and tower of Charlemagne). The most spectacular thing it has is the widest Gothic vaulted space of the world.
