Top 7 Things To Do and See in Girona

Catalonia’s largest city is Girona, Spain. Whether it’s the ancient, cobbled streets, and medieval baths or the dramatic coast speckled with arcaded houses, a trip to Girona is filled with things to do and see. Here’s our top 7.

Sant Pere de Rodes

Girona history and natural beauty meet at this ancient monastery. The view alone from the top of the hill looking over the Mediterranean coastline is worth the hike up there.

Sant Pere de Galligants

Another monastery, Sant Pere de Galligants, also features a concise museum that houses artifacts from prehistoric to Roman times.


You can’t miss the river Onyar during your visit to Girona. Cross the Eiffel Bridge for picturesque scenery of colorful houses and lovely bridges.

Girona Cathedral

This magnificent building is absolutely breathtaking, full of history and architectural beauty. On Sundays, entrance is free.

Museu d'Art

Do not miss this excellent museum, dwarfed next to the Cathedral, despite its five floors of religious art.

Lake of Banyoles

Take a quick bus to Banyoles for an afternoon of relaxing by this gorgeous lake and wandering through its surrounding old town.

Cinema Museum

The focus of Museu del Cinema is on the development of film and early advancements in the moving image. It’s highly informative and interactive, a necessary visit for all ages.

Planning Your Girona Visit

Visit in Spring

The Girona weather is warm but not too hot yet, perfect for strolling along the coast. Easter is an incredible time to visit Costa Brava. Girona is filled with joyous religious festivals and parades. Of course, summer is best for Girona beaches.

GironaMuseus Card

Pay the full price at the first museum and then half off entry at all the others. Getting the GironaMuseus Card will be worth it if you plan to see more than one of the five major Girona museums.

Girona to Barcelona

There are a few options for getting between Girona and Barcelona. You could rent a car and drive north an hour and a half to Barcelona, or maybe your flight arrival will fall conveniently with a scheduled Barcelona Bus or the train. A taxi would cost 120€, which might not be so bad if you’re splitting the cost with a group.

What People Are Saying About Girona

Places not usually on our radar, a plus.

Our tour guide certainly knew her stuff without reading it (as some others do) and was very friendly. It was a very full day to beautiful seaside villages and the archeological ruins. Too bad the fish weren't biting under the glass-bottom boat, all we saw was swaying grass! Word of advice - please point out (and allow time for) toilets and include info that the steep walk between villages could be too strenuous for some elderly people. We were glad we chose this tour and would recommend it.

Best investment I've made in quiet some time!

I've been to Girona so many times and when I took a friend last week she recommended that the next time I went, to look into a Personal Tour Guide. I wasn't even aware that the possibility existed but it turned out to be a marvelous experience (even for the children that were with us!). One of our friends was emotionally moved by the information that Miquel provided. I would absolutely repeat the experience!
From Girona: Walking Tour of Girona Reviewed by Melanie, 08/13/2016

It was wanderfull, but i thought the tur to be only in english

We enjoy the tur very much. It was very intrensting especialy the figueres tur in salvador dali museum. I was dissapoint for the translation that was both in english and spaniash when we set in the bus.

Good museum, terrible audio guide supplied by your company.

Did not stay with tour in Gerona or Figeres as the crackling made the audio unpleasant.

What we hoped for and the guide was friendly, professional, informed

We were the only people on this tour and the guide, Miquel adjusted his approach to us to maximize what we got out of it. He questioned at the beginning to find out what we already knew and what we were especially interested in seeing and learning about. He answered our questions, set a comfortable pace. He conveyed to us an excellent location for lunch. We would heartily recommend the tour and the guide.
