It is worth spending a time walking at nicely lit Girona, looking at medieval churches, defensive wall and towers.
At late evening time we got nice opportunity to see a film about modern art near the Cathedral and to degustate some food at evening’s market of Latino Americal cuisine. After end of film had some walk in old town.
Anyway, it was quite strange to see all the houses to be dark near Onyar river. Here I expected to see nicely lit view.
Rambla de la Llibertat is a nice place where you can stop to have a drink or to eat something. As on this bank of the Onyar river the streets tend to be quite narrow, La Rambla is much wider - as well many trees take place there.
There is a site where you can check what’s going on in the city about concerts, theatres, cinema or other art events. The site link is:
It’s in Spanish but very easy to navigate through it.
If you just want to relax there are many café/tapa bars in the old town where you can drink and eat something light. A small paella(on microwave of course) usually costs about 9 euro, tapas (3-5euro), bocadillos (3-4 euro) so with a couple of beers you will fill full without spending a fortune. Tapa bars are so popular all over Spain anyway and usually the locals go there to socialize. We visited some of them but I noticed some pubs too (there is always an irish pub for a guiness etc) if you want to stay up later. The most popular beer is Estrella Damm, a simple cheap lager, nothing to die for but just ok.
In Girona nightlife seems to centre around Placa Independécia. The square is full of bars, cafes and restaurants and is busy, especially at the weekend.
In the square there is a monument to commemorate the city's resistance to Napoleon.
Just across the river is Ballesteries and Rambla de la Libertat which are other lively areas in the town centre.
Some people suggested to me 2 or 3 good place to spend the night. But unfortunately i was around with my nike, and so nobody let me in... At least, this is what they said to me... Maybe i had not enough good clothes... So i went to drink a couple of guinness in a pub, not bad; anyway, can't write more about girona nightlife... But it seemed to be not bad...
Dress Code: Use NORMAL shoes.... ;) NOT SNEAKERS
there arnt many bars in girona but 2 we found were the irish bar which was ok but just around the corner was the celtic bar which had a better atmosphere in terms of decor and a decent range of beers including charles wells from england!
Dress Code: none
Ok, I said it's NOT the wildest nightlife in the world, I didn't say there ain't any.
EXCALIBUR, a pub.
What can I say - many nice moments in my life ave happened in Pubs! :-) In any given country...
I love the choice of music... am a CIDER person myself, beer is not my thing but this SURE is the place for beer lovers.

We had enjoyed our walk along the city walls during the day, but at night it was just as - if not more fascinating!
The walkways are well lit - so it was a very enjoyable walk and fantastic views!!!
