Girona is one of the most distinctive historical cities of Catalonia, well known for its Jewish old quarter, its magnificent gothic cathedral and its unique gastronomy. It has around 100.000 inhabitants and is equipped with all touristic facilities. The city is situated between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees, and it offers a wonderfully contrasting landscape only 100km far away from Barcelona, 60km from France and 30km from Costa Brava.

The historic city

One of the most interesting in Catalonia, the historic city of Girona allows you to trace more than two thousand years of history from two fortified enclosures, the Força Vella and the medieval expansion. The first corresponds to the Roman foundation and the second to the expansion of the walls during the 14th and 15th centuries.

The monuments are abundant and the artistic riches that are preserved are very notable. The attraction of Girona is completed with the suggestive Jewish neighborhood of El Call, with the beautiful streets and arcaded squares, and with the exultant baroque spaces and the Noucentista buildings by Rafael Masó.
