Favorite thing: The Old Town itself is the major attraction of the Girona because all sights are located there.
By walking from one sight to another it was interesting to see how old town scenes are changing and every picture I made ended up as picture postcard just because this city is totally romantical.
Fondest memory: Jardins de la Francesa - as I was already tired of walking I ended up in a gates to the lovely courtyard garden. It was nise sunny day and I sat on the park pench. It was warm, sunshine and birds singing. Just perfect.

Favorite thing: We had a day trip to Girona which lies sixty one miles north of its big brother city of Barcelona. Unlike its nieghbour this city is small, very walkable and quiet. If you find yourself in either Barcelona or in my case, on this occassion, the Costa Brava and have a day or two to spare check out the charms of Girona.
Fondest memory: I did find it a bit strange that the budget airlines will fly you into Girona when your accommodation will be in Barcelona and vice versa. I liked both cities for different reasons but loved the local flavour, quietness and above all the ability to really relax with no worries on personal safety.

Favorite thing: Most people will only visit Girona for only a day trip or overnight trip so usually they want to take in all the sights of the city while they are there. I went for two nights and it was nice to see the city quiet and sleepy and pretty much shut down after 2pm, but I have to admit I was getting bored of reading all day after that time on a Monday

Favorite thing: Stroll along the river Onyar and its various bridges to enjoy the great views of the colourful houses.
The street Rambla de la Llibertat at the eastbank of the river is the heart of old Girona. There are many bars, restaurants, market stalls and shops which invite the visitor for a rest or a stroll.

Favorite thing: You will get fantastic maps at the Girona tourist information - very helpful, indeed!
But if you try to figure out where your accomodation is and you are arriving late, or you just feel like getting acquainted to Girona beforehand - here is a helpful link on Girona maps.

Favorite thing: If you are visiting for a few days or just on your way through, Girona has a lot to offer. I will say this, if you get the opportunity to live here for a while, it is not lacking in the "great date spots" category. There are so many great places for picnics and small areas to sit and talk. I love that this city has so much to offer.

Favorite thing: I admit, I forgot the story about a certain event taking place here. Please, have a bit of understanding as I was overwhelmed by... MANY things and PEOPLE during my stay there. So... ask Albert (alberrrt) - he knows it all.

Favorite thing: this is just a part of the gardens in the old part of Girona… There are steps that take you there from the Wall...
On your walk, you will actually get to see the so-called Gardens of John Lennon - no idea what the story is about... In any case another beautiful spot in this town.

Favorite thing: Visit the Cathedral… yes, there are many in western Europe, and yes once seen one, you basically have a pretty good idea of what to expect, but still it is worth it. At first glance it looks gothic, and the feeling that provokes when inside, certainly comes from a gothic cathedral – huge, in all its grandness making the “common human being” feel small. However, it also has baroque elements, on the outside. Nice combination.
