Girona is a Catalonian city with a rich history that stretches back nearly two thousand years, all the way back to Roman times. The city lies at the confluence of several rivers, and visitors can walk across one of several bridges to take in views of the picturesque houses built along the Onyar River. Another popular destination is El Call, the Jewish Quarter, which remains largely intact and is one of the best preserved in Europe.
Several of these historic sites, including the medieval barri velland the Girona Cathedral, have been used as film and TV sets, most recently for the popular show Game of Thrones.
Girona is only 40 minutes away from Barcelona by high-speed express train.
