I have lived in Catalonia for three years now. I love walking in the mountains and countryside and discovering ancient castles and medieval villages. The coastline here is stunning and the beaches and coves are beautiful. I have always been interested in history and architecture and I am always looking for new views and experiences. Girona is an impressive and fascinating city, it has many fine buildings and is rich in culture. I look forward to sharing a few of these wonderful places with you.

About the tour

My tour takes you through the Historic Centre of Girona.

On our journey through the medieval streets you will step back in time.

Discover the history of the ancient sites and through stories of old, meet characters of myth and legend.

The tour stops at the filming locations used for the GAME OF THRONES series.

This is an 'Easy Walking Tour', however many of the streets in the old town are cobbled and there are some steps and small hills. The old town is very compact and covers a small area, so we have time to visit many of the important sites, walking at a relaxed pace and stopping to take photo's and enjoy the atmosphere of the City. We will not go into any of the buildings. Entry to the Cathedral, Arabic baths and museums is ticketed, so you may wish to return to those places to visit the interiors. The duration of my tour is approximately 2 hours.

Some of the places we will visit are :

The Lioness of Girona

The Basilica of Sant Feliu

The Arabic Baths

The Cathedral

The Jewish Quarter

Medieval Streets of The Old Town

The Steps of Sant Martí Sacosta

The Eiffel Bridge

We throughly enjoyed christian's tour and we recommend it to other travellers who want to learn more about girona. christian was friendly, engaging, knowledgable and good company. despite knowing nothing about game of thrones, we found it interesting to see the location shots.
