Journey in time
Before beginning your visit, first stroll along the riverbank of the Oñar river and cross some of its bridges —like the puente Eiffel or the Pont de Pedra—, and have a look at the colourful houses overlooking the river and see the beauty of how they are reflected in it. Girona is of Roman origin with medieval, Romanesque, Gothic and modernist architecture. When you are strolling through the old quarter, you will feel that you are travelling back in time. It is made up of two walled enclosures: the Força Vella and the medieval extension.
