Girona

Girona is a city located in the north-east of Catalonia. Located 100 km from Barcelona, 60 km from the French border and only 30 km from the Costa Brava, it enjoys a privileged geographical location. In addition to that, the various road, rail and air connections make it a very easy-to-access city.

With around 100.000 inhabitants, Girona is the capital of the province of Girona and has a rich cultural and historical heritage. It is located at the confluence of four rivers: Ter, Oñar, Güell and Galligants, and a large part of the territory is classified as protected area. On the banks of the river Oñar, are the famous painted houses of all colors dating from the 19th century.

The historic district of the city is perfectly preserved and you can visit walls, squares, buildings and churches of Roman, Romanesque, Gothic, Jewish and Baroque styles. It is a city to visit on foot, where is one of the Jewish neighborhoods, the "Callo", the best preserved of Europe of the medieval time. In the highest part of Girona, there is the Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque cathedral, built between the 11th and the 17th century and whose Gothic nave is the widest in the world (23 m). Nearby is the Church of San Nicolau and the Monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants (12th century), two of the best examples of Romanesque art in Catalonia.

All this makes Girona the ideal place to spend holidays with family, couples or friends.
