Get lost in the winding streets of Girona
The capital of the Costa Brava, Girona has a history going back 2,000 years. Its well-preserved medieval and Jewish quarters date back to between the 11th and 15th centuries. Highlights include the Arab baths, the romanesque and baroque cathedral, the 14th-century city walls and the colourful houses lining the River Onyar. Girona is also a city of festivals, with celebratory events held throughout the year. Visit in May to see one of the best – the Temps de Flors flower festival.
