girona + figueres

Escape the hustle and bustle of Barcelona and journey through the scenic Catalan countryside on this full-day excursion to Girona and Figueres. The ancient city of Girona can be traced back to a time before the Roman Empire. Its historical center has served as a setting for several important scenes in the popular television series “Game of Thrones.” It’s not uncommon here to find remains originating from the Middle Ages.
Your guide will show you the magnificent Cathedral and one of the best-preserved medieval Jewish Quarters in the world. Next, we will continue to Figueres, where the Dalí Museum is located. This is also the hometown of the famous Catalan Surrealist.

Book
  • Marvel at the medieval architecture of Girona, while exploring the city's Jewish Quarter.
  • Soak up Girona's unique atmosphere by walking through its winding streets.
  • Visit a 19th-century iron bridge designed by Gustave Eiffel.
  • Tour the Dalí Museum in Figueres, dedicated to the city's most famous creative genius.
  • Small group size ensures personal attention from guide.
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included.
  • Led by an expert guide.

On the ride from Barcelona to Girona your knowledgeable guide will explain the rich history of the city.
If you look closely, you will see the ancient culture and traditions still reflected in the city walls. Get lost in the labyrinth of narrow streets and travel through time as you explore the best-preserved Jewish neighborhood in Europe. Admire the Cathedral of Girona, bearing the widest Gothic nave in the world and marvel at the colorful row of houses along the Onyar River. With its beautiful scenery and medieval feel, it is no wonder that Girona was chosen to be the setting for several important scenes in the popular television series “Game of Thrones”.
During our tour of Girona, we will cross several bridges. One of them was designed by the famous Gustave Eiffel in 1877. The modern feel of the ironclad Eiffel Bridge contrast sharply with the old buildings of the city.
Next, we will visit Figueres, a small town near the border of France. Figueres is one of the three points that make up the so-called 'Dalí triangle'. (The other two are Cadaques and Púbol nearby.) Dalí was born and spent his childhood in Figueres. Follow in the footprints of the famous Catalan artist, and get to know the streets and corners that marked his formative years.
While in Figueres, we will also visit the Dalí Theatre-Museum. This bizarre structure is considered the largest work of Surrealist art in the world, designed by Dalí himself upon the ruins of the old municipal theater. Plunge deep into the painter's creative mind by viewing a comprehensive collection of peculiar exhibitions.
