Girona is a city that stands out for the attractiveness that the big capitals give off, but without having lost the charm of the small towns. The simple fact of strolling through the city, getting lost in its streets and porticoed squares and contemplating the beauty of its monuments and museums is already a real pleasure. In addition, during your stay you will be able to take part in its wide range of cultural and leisure activities, and its excellent cuisine are just some of the many proposals that you will be able to enjoy during your trip. An ideal city to travel at any time of the year. As it does not depend economically on sun and beach tourism, it is not empty in winter like other cities of the Costa Brava, constituting itself as a perfect destination to enjoy everything that a small city can offer and at the same time to escape from the massification of tourists and the hustle and bustle of the coast.

Holidays in Gerona
The area and how to find your way around
Located 103 km from Barcelona, Girona has played an important role in history due to its strategic location, a short distance from the Pyrenees. For this reason, it is one of the most interesting cities in Cataluña. Through its monuments, the traveller can travel through more than 2,000 years of history and learn about the most important events that have marked the character and way of life of the area. To do so, you must enter the two fortified enclosures that currently surround the city: the Força Vella, and the medieval widening. It is in both areas where most of the monuments of the town are found.Força Vella: the Roman origin of Gerona
It is the original nucleus of the city, founded by the Romans in the 1st century BC. At this time an imposing fortress was built with an almost triangular layout, very well protected by walls erected with large stone ashlars. Unaltered since the 11th century. The main axis of this nucleus was the current San Lorenzo street, which once formed part of the Via Augusta. We can contemplate the traces of this construction along the Passeig Arqueològic and the Passeig de la Muralla.Medieval Ensanche: the neighbourhoods surrounding the historic centre
The medieval extension is an area corresponding to the extension of the walls carried out during the 14th and 15th centuries. This is how the new neighbourhoods around the Força Vella began to emerge. Those of Sant Feliu and Sant Pere to the north, Areny and Vilanova to the south and Mercadal to the west. Protected by new walls, of which there are still some stretches that can be seen along the Camino de Ronda.
Types of travellers and activities
If you are interested in cultural visits, the best option is to rent a letting in the historic centre of the city, where most of the monumental attractions are concentrated. A very beautiful route that will allow you to contemplate all those historical buildings that are conserved in the locality and that have been witnesses of the numerous events that have marked the evolution of the same one throughout the centuries. But there are also plenty of monumental attractions in other areas. Don't miss the Cathedral, the church of Sant Pere de Galligants and Sant Nicolau, the 12th century Arab baths, the basilica of Sant Feliu, the Jewish quarter and the Monastery of Sant Daniel.Gerona for families with children
Girona offers a wide variety of leisure activities for the whole family, from botanical gardens to shopping centres and outdoor sports. But in addition, the province has numerous attractions ranging from active tourism activities to charming villages with a lot of personality, such as Besalu or Olot. Without forgetting, of course, the marvellous beaches of the Costa Brava, among which those of Palafrugell, Palamos, Sant Feliu de Guixols, Tossa de Mar or Lloret de Mar stand out. All within an hour's drive. Don't wait any longer to book your rental in Girona.
Did you know that Gerona has the smallest square in the world? It is the Plaça del Raïms which was one of the most important focal points of the commercial life of the city for many years.
Top 5 Recommendations in Gerona
The city is characterised by being designed on a human scale, so it is very affordable to be travelled on foot. Without a doubt, the best way to get to know some of its most outstanding places such as the Basilica of San Feliu, the Cathedral of Girona, the University of Sant Domènec, the houses of the Onyar, its buildings of modernist and noucentista architecture and its peculiar Jewish quarter.2. Enjoy the river crossing the bridges of Girona
The town has a multitude of bridges over the Onyar River. The most important is the Pont de Ferro, designed by Gustave Eiffel, but also very interesting are the Pont de la Princesa or the mythical and majestic Pont de Pedra. From all of them you can get a beautiful view of the colourful houses located on the banks of the river.3. Visit the house of Rafael Maso
This is the residence in which the Noucentista architect lived and which is located on the banks of the river Onyar. The façade is white and has blue windows. The only drawback is that it can only be visited by booking the guided tour that must be booked in advance. However, it is something you should not miss if you are a great lover of art and architecture.4. Eat in the most romantic corner of Spain
The Cafe Bistrot is located in a unique place: the stairs of Sant Marti. This restaurant serves delicious dishes for a very affordable price, so in addition to enjoying a romantic meal in pairs, you can delight with some of the most typical delicacies of the area.5. Try the best ice cream in the world
In the centre of Girona is the famous Jordi Roca ice-cream parlour, Rocambolesc. Of course, there's no shortage of the usual flavours, but you can also enjoy a wide variety of different ice creams that you've never tasted before and that you won't find anywhere else in the world. With incredible textures and the ability to choose from a wide variety of topings. All of them delicious, so once you try them, you'll want to repeat a thousand times more. Will you be able to decide for a single flavour?
