Girona

Culture and heritage

Medieval villages and old jewish quarters: The province hosts many medieval villages: Monells, Pals or Peratallada are some examples. One of the most known, because of the spectacular bridge that leads to it, is Besalú. This medieval village still conserves a patrimonial jewish heritage of great value, with one of the most relevant Mikveh in Europe. Along with Girona and Castelló d’Empúries, it holds one of the most well preserved jewish quarters in Europe, and is part of the Spanish jewish quarter network. 

In the province of Girona we can find great exponents of Romanic art, such as the Sant Pere de Rodes  monastery, raised at the Cap de Creus; the Ripoll monastery, whose portal is opting to be declared World Heritage Site by Unesco; or Girona’s Cathedral cloister. Just next to this spot, we can admire one the most singular and special Romanic art pieces: the "Tapestry of Creation".

Nature

The city of Girona is surrounded by a privileged natural environment. It is possible to visit a multitude of landscapes of great beauty. The territory also has renowned places such as Lake Banyoles or La Fageda d'en Jordà, which have been influenced by numerous artists. The Costa Brava offers places of spectacular beauty. From great “cales” (small rocky bays along coast) and beaches, like Aiguablava (Begur) to postcard stamps like Cadaqués or Calella de Palafrugell. 

Peaks around 3.000 meters and valleys like Cerdanya or Camprodon form the Girona Pyrenees, where we can find 4 ski resorts. With or without snow, you can enjoy trekking routes that reach emblematic places like the Núria Sanctuary, or for the most adventurous, the Puigmal Mount. 

 


Gastronomy

The best restaurants and chefs: Girona has hosted some of the best restaurant in the world. At Cala Montjoi (Roses), Ferran Adrià won world fame with his restaurant ‘El Bulli’. The Roca brothers took over with ‘El Celler de Can Roca’ (best world restaurant in 2013 and 2015). Moreover, the province has more restaurants awarded with Michelin Stars and some other ones that despite not having these kind of recognition, offer great gastronomic experiences.
