Girona is a province in Catalonia, Spain.


  • Girona — nice old town with an impressive Jewish quarter
  • Begur
  • Besalú — a very old town to the West of Figueres that has a historic bridge
  • Blanes — southernmost resort with two botanical gardens
  • Cadaqués — a nice seaside town that also houses one of Dalí's homes
  • Calella de Palafrugell - scenic fishing town
  • Cantallops — a compact mountain town with two wineries and some good restaurants
  • Cap de Creus — the eastern end of Spain; incredibly windy, but worth a trip to experience it, the lighthouse and the view out the sea
  • Castellfollit de la Roca — further West than Besalú, but worth the trip as it's a striking town perched along a narrow sliver of rock jutting out in to a canyon
  • Figueres — home to the Dalí museum
  • Lloret de Mar — a beach resort with a reputation for its nightlife
  • Olot — La Fageda d'en Jordà, a very nice forest and extinct volcanoes
  • Palamós
  • Pals
  • Torroella de Montgrí — a pleasant old town that was once the capital of the Empúries kingdom. Now it sits at the base of a mountain that goes up to a castle. A good day hike for those inclined
  • Tossa de Mar — a lovely seaside resort
