The city of Girona is located at 30km from the Encis. Its historic city is one of the most interesting in Catalonia and invites visitors to trace its more than 2000 years of history through two fortified enclosures, the Força Vella and the Medieval Quarter. The Força Vella dates back to the Roman foundation while the medieval extension of the city walls was carried out during the 14th and 15th centuries. The city’s artistic heritage has been preserved in the numerous monuments that have survived until today. The highlights of Girona are rounded off by the impressive old Jewish Quarter or Call, with its beautiful streets and squares.
As a modern city Girona holds many festivals of music, cinema, visual and performing arts which bring together a large number of disciplines: jazz, street art, classical guitar, international theatre, amateur theatre, videos and audiovisuals, etc.
