Tour description

It will be for history!!
Girona is one of the most beautiful and least known cities in Spain, but it has a lot to tell. With over 2,000 years of history, we still have parts of the Roman , Carolingian and medieval walls, and you can walk along them to see the city from the rooftops! We also preserve the original layout of Via Augusta Romana and a Jewish quarter considered one of the best preserved from the Middle Ages in Europe . A bridge designed by Gustave Eiffel , labyrinthine alleys that take you to other times, squares with arcades, monuments such as the cathedral with the widest Gothic nave in the world, the Arab baths, the "Cul de la LLeona" , the Basilica of Sant Feliu , the Sant Pere de Galligans monastery among others.

With this tour you will enjoy a complete tour of the Monumental and Medieval neighborhood of Girona , the Jewish quarter (Call), where I will also tell you the funniest legends of the city or some curiosities of the area!
Come on, cheer up! I'll be waiting for you in Girona very soon!!

Our tour guide did an excellent job of explaining all about the historical sites of Girona. She was enthusiastic about the city which was wonderful as she sometimes does 2 tours a day. She told us about some of the interesting myths and cultural experiences to enjoy after the visit as well as the museums and restaurants. I would highly recommend this tour on your first day to get a familiarity with the city to discover after on your own
