Girona

Dialogue between old and new

Situated in the northeast of Catalonia, in a privileged position between the Pyrenees and the Costa Brava, the former Roman city of Girona looks back through two thousand years of history. Divided by the Riu Onyar into Old and New Town, Girona’s cityscape has undergone major refurbishment through a variety of contemporary architecture projects. One of the most emblematic examples of this development are the colourful houses along the river banks. Meanwhile, Girona’s picturesque old town, surrounded by almost completely preserved and partially accessible city walls, is known for its rich cultural and historical heritage.
