Catalonia’s second-largest city, Girona embodies old-world charm, with its narrow cobblestone streets and traditional Catalan culture.
Visit Plage de Sa Tuna and Cala Sa Conca for some beach relaxation. Step out of the city life by going to Camino de Ronda and Cala Montgo. Venture out of the city with trips to Far de Sant Sebastia (in Llafranc), Castle of Montgri (in Torroella de Montgri) and Dali-Gala Castle Museum-House (Castell de Pubol) (in Pubol). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Cinema Museum Girona (Museu del Cinema), pause for some serene contemplation at Collegiate Church of Saint Feliu, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Banyoles, and kick back and relax at Playa Sa Riera.
