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!!

Don't settle for just walking around the town without the insight of a tour guide, you will miss so many fun and interesting facts. Our group truly enjoyed Eduardo's tour of Girona, it was wonderful walking through this town, beautiful quaint streets, amazing city views and learning all about the history and culture of the city of Girona from Eduardo. Highly recommend this tour if you will be in town, don't miss it.

Monica was incredibly knowledgable and showed us some great sites across Girona. We learnt a lot and got to see things we didn’t know anything about before our day trip to Girona… good experience…
