Where I stayed
Equity Point Girona

Flag of Spain  , Catalonia,
Saturday, October 22, 2011

From Barcelona, we headed north to the city of Girona, which is a small city of about 100,000 people. It's the Ryanair hub for Barcelona (flights to Barcelona fly to Barcelona-Girona), despite the city being some 1.5 hours from Barcelona by high-speed train (150km/h).

Girona is a compact city: all sights can be seen in a 30 minute walk by foot. It has a mostly-intact old town and city wall, which gives wonderful 360 degree views of the city, a couple of church/cathedrals and some pretty good places to eat as well. It's a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big city. One thing I like about cities with beautiful old buildings such as Girona is that they spotlight the buildings when it gets dark, making the town very scenic to walk through at night.
