Trip to Girona Catalonia Spain

Alright guys – It’s a photo heavy post for you! I hope you all love it.

A few months back, I had arranged a stay at Can Sala in Spain – ( You can read all about it here)

It was a toss up between heading over to Barcelona after that stay, or heading back to Girona. I chose the latter. And boy I’m glad I did.

Girona is so stunning – Like oh my goodness – BEAUTIFUL.

The photos I saw online sold it to me but when you are there..it’s a different kind of beautiful.

Girona is a city located on the North East of Catalonia region, right by River Onyar. This city has so much charm that I just can’t even describe it!

How To Get There

Ryanair fly from the UK to Girona. My flight was from Manchester straight to Girona and cost £54 return. BARGAIN! You can read about how to get cheap fares here.

From Girona Airport – The cheapest way to get into the city was the bus which cost around €2.75 one way. You have options for taxi etc but I don’t know for sure how much this would be. It’s around 30 minutes drive to the city from Girona Airport.

What to do in Girona?

What isn’t there to do in Girona? I loved how compact the city was and how easy it was to get everywhere even with a carry on to lug around. Long story but yeah I had to keep it on me during my day in Girona.

Depending on the length of your stay in Girona, you could pace yourself over a few days, however I was only there for a day and so I checked out the following places. Note – I arrived back to Girona super early so I had a full day there. I could have stayed longer but the crowds were coming out and I got sick of lugging my carry on everywhere 😂

Exploring the Streets of Girona

Exploring the streets of Girona is an experiance in itself. As you start snaking through them, you’ll find charming shops, quirky cafe’s, freshly baked croissants in the amazing patisseries (yumm!) The food is incredible and so cheap! I got a coffee and croissant for €3 – Cheaper than back home in Manchester 👌🏾 I later got freshly squeezed juice at a shop and a focaccia for around €4 – Not bad going right? I can’t comment for the restaurants thought since I’m the sort of person who loves indie eateries.

Old Town

When you start heading into the Old Town you’ll find yourself immersed into a different reality. So authentic and magical and just old. It’s really quite incredible.

Some of the highlights worth experiencing around the city I would highly recommend are:-

  • Onyar River
  • La Catedral de Girona (Girona Cathedral)
  • Jewish Quarter
  • Passeig De La Muralla (The City Walls)
  • Carrer De Les Ballestereries ( Perfect for breakfast full of bakeries and patisseries etc)
  • Banys Àrabs (Arab Baths – €2 entrance fee – So worth it!)
  • Eiffel Bridge
