Private Historic Tour to Girona with an Official Guide

Loading...

Girona was originally founded by the Iberians. Later settled by the Romans and renamed Gerunda, it became an important stop on the Via Augusta – the longest Roman road of Hispania. In the Middle Age, enemies frequently besiege Girona due to its proximity to the French frontier. Its exciting history is reflected all around the city: on its buildings, monuments, and streets. Besides, Girona has a lot of myths and legends. Your official tour guide will tell you all about it during our private accessible day trip to Girona from Barcelona.

The trip starts at the Plaça de la Independència, a square surrounded by original buildings, little shops, bars, and restaurants. We will take a pleasant stroll along Santa Clara Street, parallel to the Onyar river. Here you can enjoy the views of the famous colorful houses along the river shore. During the stroll, we will discover important buildings, such as the Ferreires and Yallés Bridge, designed by Gustav Eiffel. Crossing over the Piedra bridge we can admire the views of the Onyar river. This bridge leads to Rambla de la Llibertat, a street with medieval influences. Here we can also find the Jewish Quarter, one of the best preserved in the world. The Jewish Quarter and the whole historic town have pronounced hills and irregular old stone pavement. Therefore we recommend for some people depending on their level of mobility bring company and use motorized wheelchairs or mobility scooters.

At the end of this street, we will find the Cathedral of Santa Maria, built between the 11th and 18th Centuries. It has a mix of Romanesque, Gothic, and Baroque styles. The most singular feature is its large Gothic nave, the second largest in the world. The area around the Cathedral is hilly and the pavement has very old cobblestones. If you are a Game of Thrones fan, these streets might look familiar because, in fact, they filmed season 6 there.

After our visit to this historical city, we will drive the 2 hours back to Barcelona, where the accessible day trip to Girona will end.
