Benvinguts - Welcome to Girona
Located in one of the most beautiful provinces of Catalonia, Spain. You are about to discover the highlights of the local gastronomy in a unique medieval city and its stunning region.
Girona is the ideal day trip or excursion from Barcelona (only 45 minutes away) as well as for those staying on the Costa Brava coast or Catalan Pyrenees.
The mix of warm weather, great food, impressive architecture, authentic culture, lively bars, restaurants and cafes and light traffic has made Girona an attractive destination.
The historic old town of Girona will wow and surprise you.
The beautiful 14th century Cathedral, the Roman City wall, alleys, baroque buildings, the medieval architecture, one of Europe´s best preserved old Jewish Quarter (el Call) and perhaps the most well-known image of the city; the colorful painted houses along the Onyar river… It will definitely be a journey back in time. We are proud to say that it has formed the decor of the world famous Game of Thrones series.
Girona´s beauty, culture and delicious, local food and wine will give you much more than a souvenir. It is a Garden of Eden for food lovers. Thanks to the mountains, coast, lush grasslands, vineyards, climate and sun, the local gastronomy is characterized by a combination of diverse, traditional and avant-garde dishes, based on the use of pure, local produce and recipes.
Thanks to Michelin-starred restaurants like El Celler de Can Roca, proclaimed the Best Restaurant in the World, and their Charlie and the Chocolate Factory- fantasy world ice cream parlour Rocambolesc, Girona has even become an international model of quality.
So without doubt, Girona has to be on the list for every foodie traveler heading to Catalonia – Spain.
It will be a pleasure to welcome you. Benvinguts!
