A quick trip to Girona!

After our day trip to Montserrat we hoped in a rental car for a weekend away in the nearby medieval walled town of Girona. For some reason we didn’t have high expectations but boy were we ever mistaken! It’s a beautiful quaint little town that should be everyone’s list of places to visit when in Spain.

We were visiting at the start of winter so the streets were fairly empty. I can only imagine what it’s like in the summer!

We strolled around the town …

Walked along the wall edge …

… posed for some photos on said walls …

… walked on some bridges …

Those yellow ribbons are symbols of Catalan independence. This is a pretty staunchly separatist town! As seen by this massive Catalan flag …

… and more yellow independence ribbons, this time in the old town …

It’s really a beautiful town, Girona, with a meandering river going through the center of town. This picture doesn’t do the beauty justice – I blame the cloudy cold weather.

… and its filled with beautiful squares that must be packed in the summertime …

And some beautiful doors too!

The last season of Game of Thrones was filmed here too. These steps are where there was a famous scene where one of the leads rode a white horse up the steps!

We are definitely going back to Girona!
