Girona is located in northern Catalonia, Spain, just 100 km northeast of Barcelona. Catalonia is an autonomous community and retains its own unique culture and language.
Surrounded by the majestic Pyrenees mountains to the north, and the stunning aquamarine coastline of the Costa Brava to the east, Girona is the perfect place to visit for a day, a week, a month, or a lifetime.
Catalonia is famous for its incredible gastronomy and is a reputable producer of wine and olive oil.
The province has a long, rich history and contains some of the best preserved and historically important Roman and Greek ruins in the world.
There is plenty to do for family members and friends who are not riders.
Girona’s old town is lined with gorgeous cobbled streets, boutique shops, countless restaurants and delicatessens. A visit to the many museums and historical buildings, as well as a look at the unique architectural designs found in the city, are popular options for visitors off the bike. A wander through the Girona Cathedral, the Jewish Quarter, the Arab Baths and the Girona city wall, will take you back hundreds of years in history. Or, explore the incredible squares, wander through the gorgeous parks and hit the other side of town for a shopping expedition.
There is always something going on in Girona – festivals, music, cultural events and amazing fresh daily markets, to name a few! Safe to say, you will be easily entertained and drawn in by the small but lively little city.
