The Onyar River dissects the old and the new towns and is particularly interesting because of the colourfully painted houses that run along the river bank. There are several bridges that cross the river in central Girona and the most notable is the Eiffel Bridge. The riverside is attractive and attracts many visitors so for the best photos it is...

Looking at its appearance, it seems as if Onyar River is struggling to flow through the charming town of Girona, taken over and probably intimidated by the colourful blocks of flats that seem to have their foundation deep in the river. In some parts, the river looks deceivingly deep because of the buildings reflecting in the water, but the river... More

Not a hugely impressive river in August, but one bridge has good-class craft stalls along it and there are many pedestrian bridges to cross on. The buildings next to the river are very pretty, painted in different colours. The whole city has an air of elegance and charm. Well-worth visiting for more than one day.

I love to walk my 2 puppies around the Onyar river a lovely wide river teaming with wild life. So many ducks swimming & splashing huge fish & a huge assortment of birds.A great place to shop for a picnic. The river connects the old Girona to the new.

We were really surprised to find the river, particularly where we were staying, had pretty much dried up. We asked about it at the hotel and they said it was normal.

Even in April, the river level is very low, with a lot of grass and weeds growing in the river bed. The water looked quite brown. However the buildings along the banks are very pretty, and the city areas around the river are fabulous.

The Onyar Houses offer a beautiful opportunity for taking photographs with the river, and bridges.
