To get to the old town you have to cross the Onyar river on different bridges. From here you can see the coloured houses of Girona.

You have to cross this river to get to the old town from the railway station. It is a very pleasant area and there are some lovely views across the river to and from a number of bridges which cross the river.

This river flows through the centre of the city and provides an opportunity for charming pictures of the multi-coloured houses which come right down to the water's edge. Several attractive bridges cross the river and these also provide photographic backgrounds.

All roads and bridges lead here in Girona , you get some great colourful pictures and it’s always a busy place for meeting people or watching people, people and crossing from the old town to the new. The bus station is very nearby.

That very much cuts it in half and is not much navigated. Plenty of vantage points from the various bridges and it is as much the backs of the painted buildings that are the attraction, rather than the slow moving water of the Onyar itself.
