Tour description

With this tour we are going to help you discover an area of ​​the city of Girona that no one else has visited Free tours in Girona: The upper area of ​​the city and its walls!
We start this fantastic walk from Plaça Sant Feliu, our starting point at the indicated time.
First of all, we will enter the old town to visit the monastery of San Pedro de Galligans , an old Benedictine abbey that is a jewel of Catalan Romanesque . We will cross the Galligans River to discover the Arab Baths , the prelude to the Archaeological Walk , where we will find beautiful terraced gardens that extend over the Carolingian wall .

We will follow the Gironella Tower , where we will access the upper part of the murals. Once again, we will travel for a while and enjoy privileged views of the city .

To continue we will look at the mural and we will look at the Cuartel de los Alemanes and the Jardines de la Francesa , where the Charlemagne Tower is located, the only one that stood at the foot of the Gerona Cathedral when it was Romanesque.

In addition, the free tour will take us through the convent of Sant Domenec and the Las Águilas building , which was the first headquarters of the University of Gerona . To finish, we will descend through the Pujada de Sant Domenec to reach Plaça de l'Oli and Rambla de la Llibertat , the heart of the ancient city where we will end our tour.

This was definitely a pleasant surprise. It is not something I would've found on my own coming to Gerona for the first time. I did the Game of Thrones tour on my own and then learned so much of interest and saw many places I wouldn't have seen on this tour bravo.

I joined Pete for "walls" Girona guided tour with my girlfriend. Even though she is not big history fan, we both enjoyed the narration and views; Route is interesting, Pete has a lot to say - and those are not dry facts, rather histories based on human motivation and reasons behind certain things, which I'm always glad to hear. Route is easy to traverse, you will visit few amazing view points and few hidden places, otherwise hard to explore on your own. Would recommend as 1-day trip from Barcelona, if you are stating there, Girona is really worth it. Overall 5/5, no complains - I just regret I missed earlier train, I would like to try "essential" tour as well.

I loved the tour, I only had a few hours in Girona and I learned so much on the beautiful old town. Our guide, Ona was very dynamic, she provided us with historical and current information on Girona. She also had some very good recommendations! I would do it again!
