Holiday information

 

Girona

Steeped in history – the city withstood nearly thirty attacks and sieges, earning it the name ‘the Immortal City’ – Girona is a fascinating city to discover, with a striking Gothic cathedral, a colourful waterfront district on the banks of the Onyar, medieval walls, and the best-preserved Jewish Quarter (the Call) in western Europe.
As in the rest of the medieval town, the Call’s cobbled streets intersect each other haphazardly and narrow alleys lead to tiny squares. Venturing into this labyrinth of passages and courtyards gives you an insight into the enclosed world in which many townspeople lived and worked in medieval times. To stroll along the city’s fortifications afterwards, the (often snow-capped) Pyrenees framing the views to the north, comes as a complete contrast.

Sightseeing

The key to Inntravel holidays is flexibility. You can start on the day of your choice, and are free to add extra nights.
  • An introduction
    Girona still bears the imprint of a succession of cultural invasions over the centuries. Its ancient cathedral was once a Moorish mosque, its Jewish ghetto home to the single most important 12th-century school of Kabbalistic studies in Europe. And in the 19th century, the city came under French rule for four years. All this makes Girona an intriguing city to explore. 
  • Notes for a self-guided walking tour included
    You are, of course, free to wander at will, but you can, if you prefer, follow our notes on a self-guided walking tour of the labyrinthine Barri Velle (Old Town) – within which is the Jewish Quarter – taking in the fascinating museum about the Jewish community which flourished here in the Middle Ages; the Gothic cathedral which dominates the skyline; and the old city walls with their views towards the Pyrenees. Another very picturesque part of the city is the waterfront district, where tall houses painted ochre and terracotta hang precariously over the River Onyar.
