If you come on a Saturday, the city will welcome you with the best of its commercial tradition: the Lleó market, the Devesa market, and the artisans market in Pont de Pedra, located in commercial areas especially planned for pedestrians.
If you only have a few hours and want a quick glance at the town, take a stroll through the Barri Vell, the old town. If you still have time take in some of the exhibitions in the museums or galleries and have a coffee under the arches in the Rambla, a typical pedestrian street. If you still have time, go up on the town walls where you can enjoy spectacular panoramic views.
If you decide to spend a whole day here we are pleased to tell you Girona will open wide its very heart. Do not hesitate to start your visit in the Barri Vell, the old town, and go to the town history museum or the Jewish museum. Carefully choose the restaurant which appeals to you most. After lunch, in the summer when its hot, relax on a terrace in the shade. In the evening, take a deep breath and go for a stroll along the town walls: this panoramic walk gives an incomparable perspective of the town.
If you have a few days make the tour peacefully, enjoy the cultural activities on offer and get out into the surroundings and discover the Girona region and neighbouring villages. In a short time you can be by the sea or in the mountains, enjoy water or winter sports depending on the time of year and appreciate the contrasting scenery of the province of Girona.
If you are a lover of sports we have everything available for you to go trekking, cycling, take a trip in a hot-air balloon or play golf.
You can be captivated by the Dalí route between Figueres, Púbol and Cadaqués.
Or if you prefer to follow the historical trail, visit Ullastret and Empúries, Sant Pere de Rodes or the medieval nuclei of Pals and Peratallada. If you have enough time and really want to relax, visit the thermal baths of Caldes de Malavella, Sant Hilari or Santa Coloma de Farners.
If you visit Girona in summer, take advantage of the special summer programme. Attending one of the concerts in the Religious Music Festival, going on one of the programmed guided tours or taking in a film at the open-air cinema are treats not to be missed.
If you visit in May you will find a city covered in flowers with a number of temporary exhibitions in the interior gardens, patios and monuments.
If you visit Girona in Autumn you will be greeted by the city's 'Festa Major' (main annual festival). The Sant Narcís Fairs dress up the city with imagination and anything is possible. And, between one festival and another, you can take a quiet walk along the Devesa under the bare, autumnal plane trees.
