Girona is a fantastic city to visit with medieval walls, ancient cobbled streets, colourful buildings, enticing cafes, and great shopping. Here are just a few things to do in Girona.

The Jewish Quarter

Home to Jews from 982 to 1492, Girona has one of the best preserved Jewish Quarters in the world. Walk the narrow, winding, cobblestoned lanes of the El Call or learn more in the Jewish Museum.

Walk on the Medieval Walls

The city walls run long the eastern border of the old town of Girona and offer some of the best views of the city.

Eiffel Bridge

Gustav Eiffel constructed the Pont de les Peixateries Velles (the bridge spanning the Onyar river and the most famous in Girona) just before the Eiffel Tower was built.

Onyar River View

The Onyar River runs through the centre of Girona. See it from the Pont Pedra, Eiffel Bridge, or one of several other bridges that span the river.

Girona Cathedral

The Girona Cathedral dominates the skyline of Girona as you enter the city. Constructed on top of the hill, the long staircase is the only entrance. The tour of the Cathedral is highly recommended.

Plaça Independencia

Plaça Independencia is a square located just west of the Onyar River. A vibrant square that is great for a coffee, wine, or a meal.
