Catalan Girona is a city where Romanesque buildings of the X–XII centuries still stand, and valuable artifacts of the Roman period and the dark times of the Early Middle Ages are kept in museums. The power of the past centuries seems to have frozen forever in the facades of the houses of the Jewish Quarter and the outlines of the formidable Romanesque temples.
Girona is located at a distance from the coveted beaches of the Costa Brava, but this does not make the city 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 the grandiose architectural attractions, there are several worthwhile museums in Girona, where priceless exhibits of great interest to history lovers are stored.
