Would you like to get to know the surroundings of Girona? Girona is surrounded by villages and small towns that will satisfy the most demanding travellers.

The Costa Brava, which covers the coast from Alt Empordà to Baix Empordà, is lined with beaches, coves and charming towns. Cadaqués, Begur, Palamós, Calella de Palafrugell and Port de la Selva are just some of the destinations that we recommend.

If what you’re looking for is an area with more shops and leisure options, Platja d’Aro is the place for you.

And for lovers of mountains? No problem. The Girona Pyrenees are full of peaks and paths that you can explore on foot and by bike. In winter, of course, they’re also great for skiing.

Almost a third of the Costa Brava and the Girona Pyrenees is made up of protected natural areas.

Eight natural parks featuring spectacular contrasts, from snowy peaks to the charming beaches and coves of the Mediterranean within a few kilometres.

In such a short distance there’s room for fishing villages and rural high-mountain villas, Romanesque monasteries and churches, Iberian remains, Greco-Roman ruins, Jewish quarters and mediaeval fortifications, as well as the surrealist legacy of Salvador Dalí.
