Girona — the city of sieges

Thu, Mar 05, 2020

At a fare of €41.98 in October, how could I not resist a short trip to Girona in Catalonia? I was accompanied by two friends. We decided that, as the trip was Saturday to Tuesday, we would manage with just a small backpack.

We travelled on a Saturday morning flight leaving 6°C weather behind us. It was great to arrive and feel the wave of heat as the aircraft door opened two hours later. With no bags to collect, we exited arrivals and could see the bus terminal, just a two minute walk away. You could buy tickets at the terminal at a cost of only €2.75 each way. We stayed in apartments right in Girona's Old Town, just minutes from the cathedral, the city walls, and restaurants. After we checked in, we went straight for the cathedral, which was in a scene in Game of Thrones. This is a magnificent building, with numerous steps up to the top. Inside, an audio tour can be done at your own pace. This was priced at €7 for an adult. We then got outside to enjoy the 26-degree sunshine and decided to walk the city walls. There are many steps and heights along the city walls, but the views were outstanding. The walls were a marvel and a great place for photos.
