Onyar River (Riu Onyar) Tours

Onyar River (Riu Onyar)
The Onyar River (Riu Onyar in Catalan or Río Oñar in Spanish) will likely be your first and most lasting impression of Girona, its rainbow-colored-building-lined waters a warm welcome and unforgettable sight.  Their dazzling appearance invites you to journey to the other side of the bank — the eastern side — where you’ll discover more of the city’s treasures, held within its old town.

But before you get there, you’ll likely cross one of the Onyar’s many bridges. Your eye will undoubtedly be drawn to its most peculiar and perhaps even familiar bridge, the Pont Eiffel. Indeed, this red, cage-like crossing is reminiscent of a more famous structure of the same name, the Eiffel Tower. This is, of course, because they share the same designer (the bridge was constructed in 1877, just before the tower). Once you arrive on the eastern bank, feed your river curiosity by visiting Casa Maso, the only waterside building open to the public, and once home to its namesake architect.

Practical Info

Note that if you enter the old town by crossing Plaça de Catalunya, you may walk over the Onyar without even realizing it, as the plaza literally sits atop the river. If you come this way, take advantage of your location to head to the nearby entrance to the Passeig de la Muralla – a walk on the old city walls – which is indicated by signs.
Address: Girona, Catalonia, Spain
