GIRONA

Girona has the charm and magic of the big cities, but the welcoming essence of the villages. It has a wide range of tourist, cultural, and historical attractions, and a rich social life, with events and popular festivals. The city preserves an old medieval quarter that climbs up to the imposing cathedral, through the shady narrow streets of the Old Quarter, while on the other side of the river stretches the more modern and orderly part.On the banks of the Onyar is the most famous image of Girona, formed by the brightly coloured houses. From Gothic cathedrals to other significant and religious architecture, Girona is a feast for the eyes.But Girona's appeal is not limited to history or architecture. The Devesa Park is one of the most pleasant urban green spaces in Catalonia. The city's numerous museums complete a wide range of cultural offerings, such as, for example, the one dedicated to the HBO series Game of Thrones.

Weather

Catalonia offers that warm Spanish sun. North of the peninsula, you'll get fresher rides during the spring and autumn months. Make sure you grab your gilet for some wind and rain protection for those unlucky days and bring sun cream for the rest.

Terrain

Catalonia is a remarkably rough country! Flat areas are limited. Hills and mountains dominate. North is marked by the Pyrenees. Then, there is the seaside ridge. Inland is also surprisingly hilly with some remarkable places like the Montserrat Mountain, perfect for climbing.

Culture

Catalan culture boasts a huge history as well as its own unique traditions and cuisine. Take the time to discover some authentic Catalan traditions to make your trip to Catalonia even better. And of course, cycling is big deal here. La Vuelta has a Catalan root waiting to be discovered.
