Enjoy the Girona's old town


Girona is an amazing medieval city located a 100 km to the northeast of Barcelona, on a halfway between Barcelona and the border with France.
Part of the sixth season of Game of Thrones was filmed there, so the visitors will be able to recognize different spots of the tour.
Girona is having a lot of history from already the Roman times, and it used to be a quite important county during the medieval times. Is having the most well preserved Jewish quarter in Europe from before the inquisition and the widest Gothic nave Cathedral in the world. Girona is a little jewel located in the north of Catalonia with many beautiful corners, from Romanesque and Gothic architecture to modern style buildings and an iron bridge designed by Eiffel.
Girona is so well preserved that it also becomes the perfect place to let your imagination flow away and go back in history.

A Recent Review of this tour

My family coordinated a visit to Girona, a specular and historic city a bit outside of Barcelona. While Ariadna is from the town of Girona, her tour practice is based in Barcelona so she obviously can handle many types of tours for visitors. We were lucky to coordinate a half day tour via train from City Centre to Girona, where she shared with our small group of five people extraordinary passion, insight and energy over the history of the amazing town. I would highly recommend this tour.
