I don’t often post about travel photography but sometimes inspiration comes out of nowhere so here goes:
What to do if you are in Barcelona? Planning on visiting nearby cities? Then how about heading to Girona whether you are a true Game of Thrones fan, tourist or otherwise plain person? I’ll let you be the judge on that. We had a lovely visit to the city of Girona (1 hour away from Barcelona depending on which transport you choose).
When we got out of the train station I immediately fell in love with the city vibes. It wasn’t as busy as Barcelona, yet, it had lovely amount of locals and tourists enjoying the beautiful city and it’s attractions. Girona is fun and not too difficult to get around. You can basically see the main sites on foot. I specially loved the canal and it’s surrounding colourful buildings. First we headed for a sweet cup of coffee and breakfast to a local cafeteria called La Fabrica Girona. Amazing coffee and yummy pastries. After regaining some energy, we walked around the narrow streets while taking photos here and there. Then, we went for the Girona Cathedral although it wasn’t as fun from the front as it was from the far distance later when we were walking on the city walls (Muralla).
After walking around, we ended up returning to the main square of Girona, The “Plaça de la Independència” for some lovely dinner before taking the train back to Barcelona. In the main square there are plenty of restaurants, the prices weren’t too bad and the food was delicious. I can warmly recommend the local soups in the Catalan restaurants.
Here are some photos from the trip, I hope you enjoy Girona as much as we did!
