Girona  (Sergi & Yolanda)

Girona is a small big city. It is not very big in extension nor in number of inhabitants, but it is really charming and has a lot of places that are worth a visit. If you are staying in Barcelona, it is an excellent option to spend a day or a weekend in Girona, to stroll through its Jewish Quarter, its Old Town and the walls. It is wonderful to wander around, crossing the arches of small alleys which always hide some surprise, such as a beautiful courtyard or an old stone house.

In mid-May, for nine days, there is a festival called Temps de Flors (Time of Flowers), in which the streets and main buildings of the city are dressed in flowers, thanks to the work and dedication of local entities and associations. It is very nice if you can go on those dates, although it is essential to get up early to avoid the crowds that can occur in the center.
