The most interesting and beautiful tourist sites in Girona
Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
Catalonia’s Girona is a city where Romanesque buildings from the 10th to 12th centuries still stand, and museums house valuable artefacts from the Roman period and the darker times of the Early Middle Ages. The power of the past centuries seems frozen forever in the facades of the Jewish Quarter and the outlines of the formidable Romanesque churches.
Girona is a long way from the coveted beaches of the Costa Brava, but the city does not lose its value. Many tourists come here on excursions from the resort towns of the coast to diversify a lazy beach holiday, and remain satisfied. In addition to grandiose architectural sights, Girona has several worthwhile museums that house priceless exhibits of great interest to history buffs.
