A pleasant discovery.
Often, Girona represents, wrongly, only a crossing point. Many travelers leave the international airport behind, to reach the Costa Brava, or nearby Barcelona.
Girona, however, can be the point of arrival of your holiday. And, in recent times, it is cutting out an important role from the point of view of tourism.
Girona is a city that boasts a thousand-year history. And, its historical and artistic vicissitudes are witnessed by the presence of splendid monuments and buildings: Romans, Arabs, or Carolingians, just to name a few.
A city of incredible charm, with its splendid bridges, and the evocative Cases penjades, which, as the name recalls, seem to hang on Onyar, its magical river. And it is from the riverside that you can set off to discover this magical city.
