10 minute walk from the train station

Many folks forget about Girona... Great one or two day visit. You can get off the train and out of the station and go straight for 10-15 minutes and you will run into the River... read more

I had heard such marvelous things about the beauty of the houses on the Onyar. To me, they appeared faded and dull, and lacking the color I had heard so much about. Perhaps it was the weather, perhaps it was the season-- it was nice to walk by, but nothing I would go out of my way to see again.

This will be the modern Girona area. Take a left on either bank and head to the old town. You will see two huge cathedrals... More

the river can be nice when it is full of water but when not it is just a foot note at best. there is a good view from the Artisan bridge where local artisans show their wares in tents near the entrance to the old Jewish quarter..

Very European, it's nice to take a stroll along the river. The bridge is a great spot for picture taking.

Cross on one of the bridges and enjoy the view of the painted houses on the banks on the way to the old town

We were here on a perfect fall day. The sun was shining and the reflections of the buildings and greenery on the river were gorgeous. You could see big fish lounging around in the muddy river.

The view of Girona from l´Onyar has been compared to Venice, but, in fact, it is more reminiscent of Florence. Girona is an awesome tourist destination, with lovely views, great architecture spanning 10 centuries, and easy to navigate to other Catalonian sites.
