One always feels drawn back to the river as I was. Had seen pictures previously of Girona with its wonderful water way and beautiful buildings reflected in the Onyar. I rose early to get the light in the morning and again in the afternoon and was lucky as the sky was not overcast. Always drawn,and always something to spot. This... More

Beautiful view of colorful buildings perched above the river. Especially colorful in the late afternoon when the sun is shining on the buildings with a blue sky background. It makes the perfect photo

Main Girona river, Onyar, crosses the city and divides the old(and touristic) suburbs and the modern ones. Sometimes they make decorations, but more than the river, the beautiful places are the bridges(especially Pont de Pedra) and the houses in the shore.

Very pretty river overlooked by a myriad of colourful houses. There are plenty of places to cross as they seem to like building bridges, one of which was apparently built by Eiffel himself. We were here at the end of July and there was plenty of water in the river, which contained some pretty big fish (the water runs very... More

The river and her many bridges are very beautiful in the summer sun. A classical view one minute and then the drying washing from a myriad of people. Mooch and observe!

Perhaps when the Pyrenean snows melt after winter, the river becomes a wild, foaming torrent, but at the end of May it was only a shallow trickle, winding its way sluggishly between the beds of reeds. At the very end of the day it would shine in the setting sun like a ribbon of molten gold.

The river was quite full with lots of wild life swimming around, Ducks with their babies and it looked as if there was plenty for them to eat in the water. With the colourful building either side made some lovely pictures.
