Found in the Costa Brava district of Spain simply north of Barcelona, I had the delight of going to Girona. This area of Spain is not as well known as islands like Ibiza or Costa del Sol, which is both bad and good. Bad because this locale is excellent, pleasant, and loaded with dazzling coastlines that I wish they did publicize all the more so I would have gone by sooner. Good because there aren’t that numerous voyagers here and its generally calm. Throughout my astonishing stay here, I discovered various exercises to appreciate :
The Girona Cathedral
An astounding basilica, the inner part incorporates the vastest Gothic nave on the planet and the second largest in general after St. Diminish’s Basilica in the Vatican. Development was initially begun in the eleventh century and wasn’t finished until the eighteenth century. It’s right in the focal point of town keeping in mind not as stunning as the Sant Pere.

Frozen yogurt at Rocambolesc
The three Roca siblings are viewed as a portion of the top gourmet specialists on the planet and run the second-best restaurant on the planet. In Girona, Jordi Roca, the most youthful sibling, runs this dessert shop with a kind of Willy Wonka ornamentation to it. You can revel in intriguing flavors, for example, strawberry, apple, different sherbets that might be finished with chocolate sauce, berries, whip cream, popping treat, cotton confection, fruits, fudge, and a lot more.
The City History Museum
Are you are an aficionado of history? Great, me as well! I attempt to visit each history gallery I run over. All things considered, you cannot know where individuals are if you do not know where they have been before. The Girona history gallery does a great job of clarifying the city’s intricate and regularly turbulent history.
Monastery Sant Pere de Rodes
One of the most seasoned cloisters in Europe, this fantastic cloister is outside the city. However, it is not difficult to get to by transportations. This congregation is an incredible illustration of Romanesque construction modeling. (image by : Barbara Dieu )
The Jewish Quarter
The twelfth century saw the conception of a prospering Jewish group that was finished in 1492 when the Jews were casted out from Spain. Today, the Jewish quarter is one of the best safeguarded noteworthy locales in Europe with hundreds of years old houses and exteriors in grand condition.
El Celler de Can Roca
Claimed by the well known Roca siblings and considered the second best on the planet, a supper here will cost a great deal of cash. However in the event that you have the cash to use, why not consume at one of the top restaurants in the world?
Day Trek to Figueres to see Dali
Dali gallery in Figueres is short trip from Girona. Dali is an essential figure in this locale. Having been conceived in Figueres, he had lived his life in the seaside town of Cadaques for the greater part of his life, and you can visit that house as well. Some of Dali’s most renowned surrealist craftsmanship and statues could be found in the Figueres storehouse.
Girona offers a place to encounter the Catalonian locale without the swarms in adjacent Barcelona. It likewise makes for a great door city into the districts of Costa Brava with its towns, renowned coastline, and access to the Pyrenees.
