Hey everyone,

I asked a friend of mine for a good place to stay for vacation. She recommended Spain, Girona Spain to be exact. I am kind of reluctant to choose this one right ahead. Would love to hear from you if this place is really a good one. What do you think?

There is one thing that I can say to help you in your query and that is, "go there". Seriously, it is an amazing destination. Another amazing spot that you can visit is the palace de la Independčncia. You will see there the War of Spanish Independence against Napoleon Bonaparte, you will really be proud of the Spanish people on how they fought for their independence. The Jewish heritage is what really caught my attention. Eventhough I wasn't a Jew, I was proud of what they did to make their culture that rich. By the way, if you still don;t have an accomodation in there, you may check RihlaPrime, they have good offers in there.

Luckily, I have been in there before. Like you I was reluctant at first but believe me, it really is worth it. Spain is the best place for you if you yearn to feed your historical curiousity. There are so many historical places that you can visit. Personally, my favorites are the Girona's cathedral, the city wall and towers and the Collegiate Church of Sant Feliu. These spots really are amazing. Every infrastructure have exquisite designs and the view is breathtaking. A must-see if you ask me. Hope I helped you in one way

I hope it is still not late, because I have collected some information for you if you plan visitting Gerona.

While many who travel to Spain flock to the country’s well-known cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao and Seville, the area of Girona (about 2 hours away from Barcelona) is a wonderful hidden gem for those looking to do something different on their European getaway.
With its mild temperature and laid-back atmosphere, visitors have an abundance of things to do during their stay, whether your interest is sports, culture or cuisine.

5 Things To Do in Girona

1) Visit the Museum of Art
Spain is home to many wonderful museums and galleries, and the Museu d’Art is no exception. With a collection that spans the Romanesque period to works from the 20th Century, the most unique feature of the museum is the Museum-Pharmacy of the Hospital de Santa Caterina. The ceiling is decorated with paintings from the 19th Century, and the room contains pharmacy/apothecary jars and jugs dating all the way back to the 16th Century.

2) See the Houses on the Onyar
Brightly painted apartments line the river Onyar (which runs through Girona), and their interesting construction and unusual detailing are a sight to behold. Walk through the city and enjoy the urban scenery.

3) Take a cultural tour of the Catedral de Girona
No matter what your religious affiliation, the austere beauty of the city’s grand cathedral should not be missed. The tour includes an audioguide, and takes visitors through the Nave, Treasury and Cloister.
4) Enjoy a game of golf

An 18-hole game awaits you on a beautiful course at Golf Girona, designed by F.W. Hawtree. Packages are available in combination with several of the city’s hotels, and range from the “Landscape” pack to the “Luxury” pack. For more seriously sporty types, PGA Golf de Catalunya is also close by, and is ranked as one of the top 100 courses in the world.
5) Eat at the Casa Marieta preferably.

Offering traditional dishes like Duck with Pears, this mainstay of Girona’s dining scene uses market-fresh ingredients to prepare an unfussy array of delicious plates.
Though Girona has its own airport that receives flights from many European cities, a great way to enter the city is by train. The landscape between Barcelona and Girona is peaceful and pretty, and will help ease you into your adventure in this picturesque place.
