What's Girona Like?

Girona was originally a Roman settlement and later a Moorish town. The Banys Arabs are an example of the Moors imitating the Romans in one of the best-preserved medieval bathhouses in Spain. The cathedral features vestiges of the 11th-century Romanesque original structure, much altered with later Gothic and 18th-century additions. The 12th-century cloister is an elegant and tranquil refuge. Catalan art through the centuries is showcased in the Museu d'Art, with five floors of paintings, tapestries, church murals, and stained-glass tables. Girona had an important Jewish community in the Middle Ages, marked by an interesting museum devoted to 600 years of Jewish history and culture up until their expulsion in 1492. A walk around the walls gives a great sense of medieval Girona, while a glass of cava on a cafe terrace offers a relaxing 21st-century perspective. Girona hotels are an ideal choice for visitors to this part of Spain and the Costa Brava.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Girona

Girona's proximity to the Costa Brava means that English is widely understood in the city, but trying a little Spanish or Catalan will be welcomed. Gastronomy can reach artistic peaks in this part of Catalunya. The world-famous Celler de Can Roca restaurant is just outside the city center. For less exalted but enjoyable dining, many Girona restaurants offer economical menu del dia deals, which usually include three courses and wine. Local specialties include fish stew, or suquet, plenty of wild mushroom dishes and frequent appearances by the Catalan romesco sauce, made from almonds and peppers.
