HIGHLIGHTS

 

Houses along the River Onyar

One of Girona’s characteristics is the houses with lively coloured façades overlooking the river Onyar.

These picturesque houses were built over the centuries and have become one of the city’s main attractions. The photo shows the house where architect Rafael Masó i Valentí was born.

Girona's Cathedral

Girona's cathedral was built between the 11th and 18th centuries and features three greatly differing styles, ranging from Romanesque to Baroque and Gothic.

Its most outstanding feature is the large Gothic nave, second in size only to Saint Peter's Basilica in the Vatican.

Old town

The oldest part of the Roman city, the historic quarter, preserves the city’s most relevant art heritage.

Enclosed by walls, the old city district also features several religious monuments such as the Romanesque monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants and the Sant Nicolau chapel.
