Where to Stay

Where to stay

When it comes to deciding where to stay in a historic city such as Girona, there’s a lot of variety on offer. With its long cultural heritage, the city boasts a spectrum of architectural styles within its districts that make the city so diverse. As well as having modern districts, the city features beautiful historic and Jewish districts. Walking through the winding cobbled streets of the historic centre, known as the Casc Antic, visitors will feel a sense of romantic nostalgia for bygone eras. At the very heart of the city’s historic centre is the imposing baroque facade of Girona Cathedral. The historic centre is the perfect place to stay if you want to be immersed in the historic charm that the city has to offer. The Jewish Quarter is another jewel in Girona’s crown. Located within the city walls, the district has a distinctive medieval feel and is widely considered to be one of the best preserved historic districts in Europe.

Things to do

things to do

Boasting a long and varied history and culture, Girona has a wealth of sights and attractions on offer for the inquisitive visitor. It features a veritable treasure trove of museums, galleries and historic buildings to explore and enjoy. Highlights include attractions such as the Museu del Cinema, a museum that uncovers the art of visual storytelling and looks at everything from shadow puppetry to the silver screen, the Cathedral of Saint Mary of Girona, which boasts foundations that date back to the 5th century as well as a much more recent billowing baroque facade that oozes Gothic charm, the Jewish Museum, which documents the history of what was until the late 15th century Catalonia’s largest Jewish community, and the Museum of Art, which houses more than 8,500 pieces of regional artwork that ranges from stained-glass tables and Romanesque carvings to 20th century sculptures.

Eating and Drinking

Eating and drinking

Girona boasts a thriving food scene and hit the international culinary radar with a bang in 2013 when the prestigious local restaurant El Celler de Can Roca won first place on the “World’s 50 Best Restaurants” list. Since then, Girona’s restaurant scene has been increasingly popular as visitors flock to the jewels in Girona’s culinary crown. The city is well known for the impressive vitality of its cuisine, which is complemented by the combination of traditional dishes with avant-garde flair. There is a strong focus on local produce and traditional recipes. Typical popular local dishes include cod with “samfaina” sauce, pig trotters and casserole of fideu noodles. Xuixo pastries are another local highlight and can be found in many of the best cake shops. It’s not all local wares, however. In the city you can find a wide range of cuisines and fare, including Catalan, Mediterranean, market and high cuisine.

Getting Around

Getting around

Most areas in Girona are well connected by public transport, so getting around in the city needn’t be a problem for you. The Old Town and New Town alike are both highly pedestrianised, making walking one of the best methods of getting around. Car hire within the city is an option, though is not advisable both due to small size of the city and the poor traffic which renders car travel rather cumbersome. Rentals are a perfect option for those going on day trips outside of the city to see the quaint villages and castles surrounding the city. Visitors should note that many of the streets in the Old Town are cobbled, which makes walking in heels or rolling luggage rather difficult. The main airport for the city, Girona-Costa Brava, is just 10 kilometres south of the city centre.
