Destination information – Meliá Girona

Girona, which is crossed by the rivers Ter, Güell, Galligants and Oñar, is 103 kms north east of Barcelona and only a 30 minute drive from the Costa Brava.

Its discrete location between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees, make Girona a city of diverse landscapes. The Old Quarter of Girona (Barri Vell) is a maze of cobblestone streets with charming shop windows selling artisan products. The Jewish Quarter (Call Jueu) is considered of the best preserved in the world, and demonstrates the importance of Jewish culture on the city. The city is crossed by a number of bridges, one of them built by the Eiffel company in 1827.

The bridges divide the historic centre from the new. Perhaps one of the city’s most iconic images is that of the “Houses of the Onyar”: A set of private houses painted in vivid colours overlooking the river.
