Get Enchanted in Girona, Spain

Posted On June 28, 2010 

Although not very famously known is the richest city in Spain, No, it’s not Madrid ! I am taking about the charming city of Girona. This is a city that exists from thousands of years and is the capital of Catalonia. The city is very beautifully maintained and if you take a walk out onto the uncrowded streets then you would know exactly what I am talking about!

Since the city is not that populated, it is quite difficult to get lost here. The city of Girona has a lot of historical importance as the city has been taken over by foreign colonies seven times. The entire town is enclosed, so to speak, with high rising walls that go high up and then lower continuously like a loop. These were built to protect the city during earlier times. You could even take a walk up these walls for free.

One of the most visited places in Girona is the cathedral. It is supposed to be the crown jewel of the city. Getting in would cost you about five Euro. It is believed that the twenty five brilliantly decorated chapels are haunted by ghosts. While in the city, you wont need to hire a car or even catch a bus ride for that matter. The city of Girona is very pedestrianized.

    The ancient cathedral, which stood on the site of the present one, was used by the Moors as a mosque, and after their final expulsion was either entirely remodelled or rebuilt. The present edifice is one of the most important monuments of the school of the Majorcan architect Jaume Fabre and an excellent example of Spanish Gothic architecture
