I saw photos of this place and what I saw made me want to go to Girona. I had been told of this city and I was eager to see it. And when I did, I understood why it was so highly acclaimed. Upon arrival you instantly realize. For me, the best thing about the city is the Old Town. For some reason, these colored houses surrounded by a green river have a special charm like a Mediterranean city, a welcoming city. Walking along the river and crossing the bridge that takes you into the beautiful city streets is something every travel lover should do. A special place.
