This is a great little city north of Barcelona with a lot of history. It used to be a thriving Jewish community until 1492 when my brethren were expelled. It has great little streets to walk, tasty Tapas and Gelato joints plus a decent amount of shopping. The walk across the bridge is very picturesque due to the multi-colored buildings.

Girona is one of the most popular destinations in Spanish Catalonia. It is modern, but very historic. The beautiful river and the colourful houses along the river are the main attractions of this city. Also the old town is really interesting. Don't forget to look down the view from the old city wall.

A small historic city to the north of Barcelona, Girona is a great place to base yourself in the Costa Brava. Excellent food, a well-preserved ancient city, and plenty of Catalan nationalism.

Sadly, Girona is often remembered for the presence of the RyanAir Girona Airport, which is supposed to serve Barcelona, but is actually two hours away. It should be known in its own right for its lovely cathedral, historic architecture, and generally relaxed, Italianate vibe. Worth a visit all on its own.

Girona is a lovely small town, a few hours from Barcelona. It was a former Roman/Muslim occupied city. It's notable monuments includes the Cathedral, old Forts, the houses along Onyar River, and the Eiffel Bridge, just to name a few. Stroll along the small narrow streets and stop by the many little cafes for a drink. It's a nice getaway heading north to this town.

We ended up spending a few days in Girona because our Ryan Air flight from Pisa dropped us their for less than 15 Euro during some outrageous sale. What luck for us! Girona is a lovely old hill town on the Onyar River, and full of narrow streets, stone stairways, and gracious old churches. It's also known for it well-preserved Jewish Ghetto, and cemetery.

The Costa Brava city of Girona is the perfect holiday spot for a few days. Compact, easy to get around, lots to see and do, the second best restaurant in the world (or so they say: Check out El Celler de Can Roca while you're there), and a Ryanair-served airport a 15-minute taxi ride away. Cobblestone streets, a gorgeous cathedral, great Catalonian cuisine, and 50 day trips within two hours. I could live here.

Our last visit to Girona was limited to driving through town to the Train Station, dropping off the Rental Car, and travelling on (via Rail) to Barcelona. Gayle's biggest Catalonia regret is not visiting Cadaques on the Cap de Creus penisula, north of Girona. Mine was not having the time to wander the Old Jewish Quarter of Girona.

The city had a special character. Old, grey (natural colurs) and mysterical.. with narrow, curvy and leaning streets and funny take offs. It was fun!
I understood the paella with the black mussles is tipical for this place. I didn't appreciate it that much..
