A city tour
The day trip through Girona can start at the Cathedral. Before accessing it you will have to climb the 90 steps. This building is built in three styles: Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque. The nave of the Cathedral is the second largest in the world and only surpassed by the church of San Pedro in Rome.
Afterwards you can wander through the old town. Among the medieval alleys stands the Jewish Quarter, El Call, where a small community lived until the end of the 15th century. It is one of the best preserved medieval centers in Europe. The tour of the Old Town can conclude in the Archaeological Walk, with the Julia and Cornelia towers; and the Arab Baths.
The Onyar River crosses the city of Girona and around it peculiar constructions have been created. Surely one of the images you have seen most of the city are the colorful houses along the river. They are the famous Casas de l’Onyar, all of them painted according to a unique chromatic scale.
Another attraction of the city are the many bridges that cross the Onyar River. Gustave Eiffel himself designed one. There are four bridges that cross it but two stand out: the Puente de Piedra and the Puente de las Peixateries or the Pescaderías. Both have become symbols of Girona.
For lunch, we propose the option of eating at the KM-O Girona Center, a hamburger restaurant in the center of the city that treats the product of proximity with care and dedication, especially the veal from Girona.
Game of Thrones
One of the reasons why the city we present to you has become world famous is the Game of Thrones series. The fans of this series will recognize many of the scenarios of the screen walking through Girona. Specifically, the sixth season of Game of Thrones. On this website you can visit the places of the sixth season and see them recreated in the series.
