Local Catalan Cuisine
Catalonian cuisine, which has been subject to so many influences, is very good and filling. Fish and seafood are always fresh, and sausages and meats are usually local and very good. There a many cold dishes like Catalan Salad (various greens, cold meats, and vegetables), escalivada (roast aubergines, onions and red peppers) and xat? (curly endive lettuce, cod and anchovies). Most popular dishes are butifarra (Catalan sausage with beans), longaniza (local spiced sausage) and fuet (a delicious type of salami). Catalunya also has very good wines.
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.

lower old town
bulk of the streets in old quarter are pedestrian .. easy to stroll and behold the local architecture. so many nooks and corners provide many alleys to loose while you discover the city
Sit down and have a beer
I like the "beer atmosphere", and in Girona you can breeth it. Lot of people sit down and have a beer or something else in the bars, talk, smoke a cigarette, aren't in hurry...
