Girona, Capital of the Costa Brava
The city of Girona is a magical and surprising city. It has a very well preserved old quarter, the 'Barrio Viejo', where you can't miss the Jewish quarter known as "El Call", one of the best preserved medieval nuclei in Europe.
The great icon of the city is its cathedral and its staircase ... to reach it, you have to climb the most famous stairs in Game of Thrones: those of the Great Sept of Baelor. You will not forget the Casas del Onyar: the brightly painted hanging houses that form one of the most characteristic sights of Girona. The strength of Girona, both for its inhabitants and for its visitors, is that it is a city on a human scale, but with the attraction of large cities. It is a lively city all year round, with a large number of events.
One of the highlights is "Girona Flower Time" in May, when the city is decorated with floral displays that leave images worthy of any film. "Girona's gastronomy has become an international benchmark" Girona's gastronomy has become an international benchmark, with two Michelin-starred establishments and the best restaurant in the world, El Celler de Can Roca, recognised by the prestigious Restaurant Magazine.
A good way to discover the city, its culture and its gastronomy is with a fun and delicious tour by 'Girona Food Tours'.
