Girona

A Tranquil and Very Beautiful City

The origins of the city of Girona date back to Roman times. The Goths settled here around the 6th century. Around 900, there was a larger Jewish community here, which still characterizes some parts of the city today. In 1939, Franco's troops conquered Girona.

Girona is the capital of the province Girona. With about 75,000 inhabitants it is a bit more contemplative than Barcelona.

In the old town of Girona, east of the Rio Onyar, you can walk in narrow alleys. Newly renovated, this part of the city is quite colorful. The Moors built public baths in the 13th century, modeled after their North African homeland, the Banys Arabs. These baths are still very well preserved and can be visited.

Mondays to Saturdays: 10-19:00
Sundays and on holidays: 10-14:00

Admission: € 2,00

One of Spain's most beautiful churches is the Cathedral of Santa Maria of Girona. 30 chapels surround the cloister inside the church. The Cathedral of Girona was built between the 14th and 16th centuries. Many treasures can be seen in the museum, which can be reached from inside the church.

Opening Hours of the Cathedral
Tuesdays to Saturdays: 10-14:00, 17-18:00
Sundays: 10-14:00
