1. Investigate the Old Quarter
Girona’s Old Quarter (Barri Vell) is located alongside the Onyar Waterway. This area contains some of Girona’s most famous and well-preserved verifiable locations. Loaded up with archaic engineering, beautiful old homes, and pleasant extensions, but without the hordes of Barcelona, this is my number one region to meander around.
2. Wonder about the House of Prayer in Girona
Built between the eleventh and thirteenth centuries, the Basilica of Saint Mary of Girona overshadows the city. It’s the second-greatest church on the planet, measuring practically 23 meters (75 feet) across—just St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican is more extensive. (It was additionally highlighted in the round of lofty positions!)
3. Visit the Bedouin Showers.
These safe public showers were built in 1194. Their Romanesque style was motivated by comparable Roman and Bedouin showers and was an implicit reaction to antiquated Girona’s developing populace and the need to further develop cleanliness.

While you can’t really utilize the showers, you can take an independent visit to see what washing resembled in the Medieval era. The structure is covered by a huge vaulted roof and incorporates a cool water shower, a heated water shower, and evolving rooms.
4. Walk Around the Eiffel Extension
The Palanques Vermelles Scaffold, otherwise called the Eiffel Extension, was worked on in 1827 by Gustave Eiffel, not long before the development of his most popular work, the Eiffel Pinnacle. Situated over the Onyar Stream, it’s an incredible spot to get a few pics of the Old Town’s beautiful structures. I attempt to cross this scaffold frequently, essentially in light of the fact that the view is so great!
5. Visit the religious community of the Holy Person Daniel
This cloister, located on the outskirts of town, was built in the eleventh century to lay out a convent in the area. While the monastery is currently closed, you can still visit the congregation and group. Inside, you’ll find the Holy Person Daniel’s catacomb, reputed to house the remaining parts of the holy person himself. The architecture is a blend of Romanesque and Gothic, with increments from the twelfth and fifteenth centuries.
