Postcard from … Girona

Girona is a Spanish city in Catalunya, around an hour’s drive from France to the North.

Despite being beseiged more than 20 times in its long history, Girona remains a bit off the radar, perhaps because it’s only 70 miles from Catalunya’s lively capital, Barcelona. But Girona is a relaxing, friendly town packed with history, architecture, great food and shopping. It’s well worth a visit for at least a couple of nights.

If you get chance to go, a visit to Girona’s famous three Michelin-starred restaurant, El Celler de Can Roca, is a must. But you need to book several months in advance. Another fantastic place to eat is Can Marques.
