Anyone who wants to get to know one of the cities with the most beautiful and well-kept historic centres in Spain simply must visit Girona. This town in Catalonia is the ideal place from which to explore one of the most stunning and varied areas of the country. It combines culture, history and a plethora of top quality accommodation, especially small hotels with charm, perfect for a few days’ break.
Girona Cathedral is one of the main reasons to visit the city. Famous for being the scene of an episode in the award-winning series Game of Thrones, the building is a clear example of Gothic style, and presides majestically over the city. Basilica of Sant Feliu or the Sant Pere de Galligants Monastery are other must-see places to visit, as are its bridges (Puente de Gómez, Puente de Piedra, Puente de Hierro) all of which are exquisite. Girona also boasts one of the best kept Jewish quarters in Europe, ideal for a carefree wander around its streets. A perfect chance to get to know one of the most fashionable places in Catalonia, with the city itself and hundreds of fascinating places to visit in the surrounding area.
