DAY TRIP TO GIRONA: 5 THINGS YOU CAN’T MISS
Girona is such a cute little town, located just two hours via bus from Barcelona, it is worth checking out if you have extra time in Barcelona and you’re not sure what to do. I would describe Girona as a chic/hip, up and coming suburb. It has a ton of cute little shops and cafes as well as some beautiful scenery. So here are the top 5 things you can’t miss.
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.
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?
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.
Where to eat and drink
+Cub: Great place for lunch or dinner! They have great food at awesome prices. They also have an outside patio (which books up super quick) where you have kick back with a glass of wine and people watch.
