Girona is a well-preserved medieval city. It is just 100 km from Barcelona, in the direction of France. The river Onyar divides the city into two parts, separating the modern quarters from the Medieval old quarters of the city.
In Girona, you will dive deep into the history, myths and legends of one of the most beautiful cities of Catalonia. Its occurrence is fraught with some mystery. One of the legends says that in these lands appeared a three-headed giant Heron, and as expected, he fell in love with a local beauty Pyrene. She, fleeing from the terrifying giant, ran away to live in the forest. Learning of this escape, the mad Heron set fire to the woods, and she got into a fiery trap. The sad end… But then there appeared Hercules, who killed the evil giant, and sprinkled the mountain of huge stones on the place of death of Pyrene, which later became the Pyrenees. After a time, the sons of Heron built the fortress in honor of their father, and named it after his name. Subsequently, it gave the name to the city.
Once here, you will plunge into the atmosphere of the middle ages. You can walk on the fortress of La Força Vella, that was built by the Romans in the first century BC, and visit the Jewish quarter – one of the most emblematic areas of the old part of the city. The Cathedral was built between the XI and XVIII centuries and it is a fusion of different styles of architecture together. The art lovers can visit the Old Arbat Girona. In antiquity, it was a commercial and entertainment center of the city, and today you can find here the street vendors and artists and enjoy the unique aromatic coffee.
We invite You to join us and enjoy the atmosphere of this friendly city!
