Full description
Begin your walk through the historic center of Girona in Plaza de la Independencia. From here, go to the bank of the Onyar and cross the river over the Gomez Bridge. Find out why the bridge is called this along with numerous other fascinating facts from your guide.

After contemplating the colorful buildings of this area of the city, head towards the ancient Monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants and see where the monks lived in medieval times. Then, admire the exterior of the Arabic Baths which were an important facility in the city.

Later, take a walk around the "call", the historic Jewish quarter of Girona which is one of the best-preserved in Europe. This Hebrew neighborhood is next to the Cathedral of Santa Maria, located at the highest point of the city. Admire the exterior of the cathedral, ending the tour in the Cathedral Square.

If you choose the option with entrance to the Cathedral, visit the interior of the temple to see the widest Gothic Nave in Europe. It is the 2nd widest nave in the world, second only to the one in Saint Peter's Cathedral in the Vatican. Also, admire other outstanding details such as its stained glass windows, the cloister, and other treasures in the Cathedral including the only medieval tapestry in the world.
