Girona is great little city for shopping, especially for unique souvenirs. You can spend hours here exploring the little winding streets looking for treasures. Here are some of our favourite places to buy souvenirs in the city (remember that most shops are closed between 2-4pm).


Ice Cream Parlour, Ice Cream, Spanish

Set up by the Roca Brothers – the same names behind El Celler de Can Roca, one one of the world’s best restaurants – Rocambolsec is an ice cream and candy store in the centre of Girona. If you can’t afford to eat at El Celler de Can Roca, then this Willy-Wonka-esque confectionary shop is the next best thing. Filled with colourful contraptions and bottles filled with sweets of assorted flavours, they serve a number of changing ice cream flavours, which include caramelised baked apple, coconut and lavender, and cherry and lime sorbet. There are, of course, also a myriad of delectable toppings, too, including marshmallows, honey, chocolate drops, fruit, cookies, and brownies. Candy and chocolate are also sold, so you can have something to take back home with you as well.

Nausica Masó Orfebre


Nausica Masó is the granddaughter of the famous Girona architect Rafael Masó, who designed many buildings in the city, as well as redesigning his own family home, which is now a museum. Nausica did not follow her grandfather into architecture, however; she decided instead to focus on jewellery. This small boutique is where Nausica sells her pieces, which feature quirky designs made from recycled precious metals and large chunky stones. Her work is particularly inspired by the works of her grandfather in the colours and shapes.

La Carpa

Shop, Store

Located in one of the houses along the River Onyar, La Carpa (meaning The Carp) is the perfect place to pick up souvenirs for children. A traditional toy shop, La Carpa is packed with lovingly handmade and colourful wooden toys. Think everything from spinning tops and puzzles to puppets and kaleidoscopes.

Tocat Pel Vent


Meaning a ‘Touch of Wind’ in Catalan, Tocat Pel Vent is a concept and furniture store. Although the shop sells lots of larger items of furniture, there are plenty of smaller unique pieces made from recycled wood and metals. Whether you need a new lamp for your desk, some pretty bowls for the kitchen or individual pieces of artwork, this is the place to come.

La Noucentista

La Noucentista

This tiny delicatessen is the best place in the city to stock up on traditional Catalan products to take back home. The shelves are packed with cheeses, cured meats, little pots of saffron, local honey and sauces such as romesco (made from red peppers, almonds, olive oil and garlic).

Carrer del Migdia, 22, Girona, Spain

Nou Taller de Vidre

Nou Taller de Vidre

A beautiful glass gallery and workshop, Nou Taller de Vidre is the ideal place to pick up some artistic creations for your home. Think multi-coloured glass sculptures, dishes and plates. You can even learn about the glass-blowing process here, too.

meet our Local Insider

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
