How to Spend 1 Day in Girona
Walking through old Girona is a walk back in time, complete with a hilltop castle, towering cathedral, cobbled lanes, and old city walls. It’s one of the most important historical areas in Spain. Here are some tips on what to see and do in Girona if you only have a day.

Morning: Girona Walking Tour
Girona’s historic core is best explored on foot, so kick off your day with a walking tour of the city’s old town. Learn more about Girona’s 2,000-year history as you visit notable points of interest, including the Medieval Quarter, Jewish Quarter, Arab Baths, Museum of Jewish History, Cathedral of Santa Maria, and Eiffel Bridge, built by Gustave Eiffel before his famous Paris tower. Fans of the George R.R. Martin novels or HBO hit series Game of Thrones can opt for a themed tour to filming sites around town. 

Afternoon: Dali Museum
Make the short trip north by train to the nearby town of Figueres, birthplace of surrealist Salvador Dalí, for an afternoon visit to the Dalí Theatre-Museum. Spend your time exploring the quirky collection, arranged by the artist himself, and pay your respects at his crypt. While it’s possible to visit independently, a guided tour offers in-depth info about the artist, his works, and his hometown. If you’d rather stay in Girona, take a walk along the medieval city walls, or sign up for a hands-on cooking class for a crash course in Catalan cuisine.

Night: Dinner and a Show
Finish off your day in Girona with a special dinner show inside Valltordera Castle, a Spanish castle that hosts a medieval show, complete with knights, horses, and pageantry, as well as a flamenco performance with live dancing and Spanish guitar. For something a bit more relaxed, make your way to Placa de la Independencia for an evening of Catalan tapas hopping, or book a table at one of Girona’s numerous fine dining restaurants.
