Pont De Les Peixateries Valles on Oynar River

What a beautiful bridge! Also known as the Eiffel Bridge, this bridge was designed by Gustave Eiffel right before the Eiffel Tower. Having similar attributes, it’s definitely a beautiful bridge with some amazing photo opportunities.AniaTravels-on-Pont-De-Les-Peixateries-Valles Pont-De-Les-Peixateries-Valles-on-Oynar-River

Rambla de la Llibertat

As you know by now, I love to people watch. This is a perfect street where you can sit on a patio with a glass of wine and people watch. There are tons of different restaurants and pubs all on this street. The street becomes extremely lively at night, so if you’re up for it, I recommend going patio hopping and people watching.

Placa Dels Raims

Known as the smallest square in all of Europe, it sure is small indeed! So small it’s hard to find. But if you make it to my recommended coffee place this is right around the corner. It’s really neat to see how small this place actually is. Makes you wonder what is considered a Placa in Europe?



Cathedral of Girona and Basilica de Sant Feliu

The beautiful Cathedral is known to have the widest Gothic nave in the world. Definitely worth checking out. The entrance fee will cover the cathedral, cloisters and the museum. Right next to the cathedral is the beautiful Basilica de Sant Feliu, they are both surrounded by Jardins Dels Alemanys (German Gardens) so once you’re done exploring the cathedral go for a stroll around its grounds, you won't be disappointed with the beauty.

El Call (Jewish Quarter)

One of the best kept Jewish Quarters in all of Europe, this one you cannot miss. The narrow maze like streets, cobblestones, and winding paths will bring you back in history over 500 years. I love taking a stroll down Jewish Quarters, there is so much history and it’s a great way to imagine how Jewish immigrants once lived.
