Girona overnight stay

by dove_dv

Hi!
I´ll be in Girona on 22nd of December. I´m looking for cheap overnight accommodation for 2 people and some tips on what to do in that one evening in Girona.
Thank you in advance!

I spent some days in a fantastic apartment close to ancient Cathedral, but accomodation was not so cheap (anyway it was a really charming place!):

If you desire something cheapest, try one of those safe sites: bookings is very helpful and offers many sincere users reviews on hotels.

For events, concerts, theatres or other things to do in the evenings, an help in choice can come from this guide (available only in spanish):

I suggest you don't lose a walk in the old city centre: Girona is a quite small town, really walkable, and surely fascinating during evening hours.

I'm over this Monday, 1st of December for an overnight, I'm looking at 3 cheap Bed and Breakfast places, I'll come back and post a review on my return. I'll also have a look and see what's on when you are over.

It's a beautiful city, the wall is well worth walking, it has a good contrast between the old and the modern. Too many think of Girona and only think of the airport, a gateway to the coast without exploring the city itself.

well, one of the three was closed, one was full and I didn't find the third until I was on my way to catch my bus. I ended up staying in Hotel Peninsular. It was warm, clean, and en-suite. Only down side was it had no bar but there were plenty round about in the small lanes. It was 58 euros for a double room with twin beds and looking at the web, that seemed to be the standard price. I'm going back in January but will try and book the Pensio Margarit now that I know where it is.

Both of these are fairly central, close to the river and shopping / cultural areas and handy for rail/bus links.

Sorry I didn't get to find out what was on later in the month for you, bur Girona Turisme website should be able to help. Enjoy your visit.

Travel Tips for Girona

5 museums

by mindcrime

Although I didn’t have the time to visit all the museums in Girona there are 5 really interesting ones. The ticket fee is low anyway but have in mind if you pay the full price at the first one you can visit the other 4 with 50% discount.

1)City History Museum
It’s housed on a building from the 18th century and here you can see the history of Girona from the Roman era to the medieval period and then till modern times.
The entrance fee is 3 euro. It’s open daily 10.00-14.00, 17.00-19.00 (Sundays 10.00-14.00). closed on Mondays. Address:Carrer de la Forca 27

2)Archeological Museum of Catalunya
It’s housed on Sant Pere de Galligants church, check the romansque building anyway and inside you will find roman sculptures and other prehistorical exhibits.
It’s open daily 10.00-14.00, 16.00-19.00 (Sundays 10.00-14.00). closed on Mondays.

3)Cinema museum
If you like cinema you will have great time at this place, not in the Old Town but very close. You can spend hours with movies, clips and articles about old and new films. I was surprised about the visual exables from the medieval era (yes, there was life before Buster Keaton). Even their site is great.
The entrance fee is 4 euro. It’s open Tuesday-friday 10.00-18.00, Saturday 10.00-20.00, Sunday 11.00-15.00. closed on Mondays. Address:Carrer Sequia 1

4)Museum of History of the Jews
A great museum to learn the history of Jews in Catalunya during the medieval era till the end of 15th century. The gravestones are impressive.
The entrance fee is 2 euro. It’s open daily 10.00-20.00 (Sunday till 15.00) Address:carrer de la Forca 8-10

5)Museu d’Art
I didn’t visit this one but I’ve read it has a nice collection of Romanesque and gothic art. Address: Palau Apiscopal-Puhada de la Catedral 12

Catalunya (Catalonia)

by HORSCHECK

Girona and Barcelona belong to Catalunya. The locals speak catalan which is very close to spanish. Catalan in all its variants is spoken over an area with a population of 10 million people.
Catalunya has its own flag called Senyera. It shows four red bars alternating with five yellow ones, all of the same width.
Since 1980 september 11th is declared as the Catalan national holiday.

Serra de Montserrat - mountains and monastery

by Raimix

Montserrat is an escape to quite unusual Spanish mountains and monastery. Montserrat means “Teeth Mountains”, actually mountains look like teeth. The research showed that such form mountains were formed due to the sea water polishing in prehistoric times.

Monastery is known from medieval times, but got new look in 19th century and it stands in 800 meters high mountains. What is more, it is possible to walk or take funicular to 1236 meters high place. Place is famous for keeping statue of St. Mary.

Serra de Montserrat is about 120 kilometers from Girona.

For further information watch my Serra de Montserrat VirtualTourist page.

Buses + trains

by tini58de

There is a Ryanair bus to and from the airport, which is very convenient! Other than that there are buses to the Costa Brava and other nearby destinations.

The bus station is right behind the central railway station RENFE, so you have a double choice of transportation!

Chinese

by bonio about Gran Muralla

Spotted this restaurant on my walk home from the football stadium, it's about a 10 minute walk from the old town, so a predominantely local custom and doing a good takeaway trade too, always think that is a positive sign.
Food excellent, good vegetarian choice for Mrs Bonio in a friendly and comfortable restaurant, enjoyed our visit.
