A delightful city located at the confluence of the rivers Ter and Onyar. The old town, a maze of streets and alleys, leads to the Santa Maria Cathedral (14th-18th century). If you cross the Onyar to reach the modern city, do not hesitate to stop and admire the yellow, ochre and orange coloured facades. The many squares with bars, shops and restaurants make Girona a lively cultural and culinary city. Girona, a real Catalan city which is proud of its status, is worth a detour. Being just 20 minutes away from your residence, it would be a pity not to spend a few hours there. Some useful links:
