Girona is a 2000-year-old town, founded by Romans, completely laid out in stone with lovely narrow cobbled streets. Girona has both Romanesque and Gothic monuments like Sant Pere de Galligants, an old Romanesque monastery, Sant Felix church, a gothic building with baroque and neogothic elements and the Cathedral with the widest gothic span in the world.
We are going to visit the Jewish Quarter, one of the best preserved in Europe, and the city walls. And we will finish by strolling along the Rambla and the Eiffel bridge.
Let me recommend the specialty of this city: the xuixo (a fried pastry bun filled with cream).
