This Holiday in a nutshell
  • little-known city with a superbly preserved Jewish Quarter
  • notes for a self-guided city walking tour included
  • well-located, friendly hotels
  • enjoy as an add-on to another Inntravel holiday in Catalonia

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.
If you can, it is worth timing your stay to coincide with the city’s annual flower festival in mid-May. Many of the public buildings are decorated with flowers, creating a riot of colour, and buildings which are normally closed or which charge an entrance fee are opened up free of charge.
     
Beth Hancock, Inntravel
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.
