Tour description

Girona is a city full of legends. Throughout its history, countless events have been collected, which have given rise to curious anecdotes and stories. Did you know that the Sant Feliu area hides a dark past? Prostitution, crimes and drug addiction are some of the events that marked an era in the neighborhood.
We will discover some secret sculptures and their meaning, hidden maps, the smallest square in Europe ... Through narrow alleys we will enter the Jewish Quarter , which hides some secrets underground , and we will talk about the imposing Cathedral , full of unknowns and mysteries.
Little by little we will climb to the highest part of Barri Vell, with beautiful views. We will cross the wall and arrive at the Monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants and walk through the Chinatown. Why was it called that? What happened? What do we find, there, today?
We will answer these and many more questions until we reach the final point of the tour: a strange statue with the figure of a Lioness. Without a doubt, the best-known legend of Girona and one of the symbols of the city.
