Girona has it all: vibrant port cities like Cadaqués, picturesque medieval towns like Besalú and Camprodon, and lush national parks. Whether visiting for pleasure or for business, you can sample everything this region has to offer with one of our beautiful Girona vacation rentals.
Girona is a province of Spain, located in the northeastern part of Catalonia. Along its northwest edge is the neighboring province of Lleida, while the enchanting city of Barcelona can be found just 70 miles southwest. To the north is the Regional Park of the Catalan Pyrenees and France beyond, while the Mediterranean Sea runs along Girona's eastern seaboard.
Start your adventures in the beautiful city of Girona, the capital of the province, located at the confluence of the Galligants, Güell, Onyar, and Ter rivers. Fans of Game of Thrones may recognize elements of Girona as the fictional city of Braavos. Walk the imposing walls, visit the Girona Cathedral, or shop and dine along the pedestrian street of Rambla de la Llibertat.
While there are several national parks throughout the province that are definitely worth exploring, one of the most unique is the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, located about 40 miles northwest of our Girona vacation rentals. This park contains 46 inactive volcanoes, most of which can be hiked around or climbed for incredible vistas.
Just 14 miles east of this volcanic expanse is the perfectly-preserved country town of Besalú, home to an impressive 340-foot Romanesque bridge (the only such bridge in Catalonia with seven arches) that straddles the Fluvia River. Besalú also offers quaint cobblestone streets, open-air markets, gorgeous 12th-century churches, and a unique Jewish quarter, known as the Call.
