Did you know several episodes of Game of Thrones were filmed in Girona? And the city boasts much more than that: it is a wonderful combination of charming beauty spots, great atmosphere and medieval history. Let's take a tour!
The image that comes to most people's minds when they think of Girona is the view of the colourful houses on the banks of the River Onyar. Just because this is typical does not mean it is less worthy of a visit: dive into the city's traditions and take a selfie with the Cathedral and the tower of the Basilica de Sant Feliu in the background. Discover Noucentisme at Casa Masó and immerse yourself in the medieval past of the city, touring its Jewish quarter, one of the best preserved in the world.
If you are looking for the fastest, most comfortable and most sustainable way of travelling to Girona, then choose to travel by train. Whether travelling with your family, children or friends, you will always obtain the best price. At Avlo, we make it easy for you.
When visiting the Cathedral Treasury-Museum, you can enjoy the Romanesque tapestry of the Creation, the Tapís de la Creació, embroidered in the eleventh century and spanning more than three and a half metres by four and a half metres.
Don't forget to visit the Cathedral staircase, made famous by the Game of Thrones series, in which it appears as the staircase of the Great Sept of Baelor. A photo is a must.
Don't miss out on the Arab baths, inspired by the Roman baths and with a spectacular dome crowning the central pool.
And you absolutely must try xuixo and ratafia. If you have no idea what they are, try them, rest assured your stomach and your spirit will thank you.
