nice, quiet river with great views of the colourful, vivid buildings on the side. Somehow it reminded me of Florence, Italy. Definitely worth a stroll

I'm sure that with the right filters and a full subscription to Photoshop this would work but the reality is a bit underwhelming.

The very epitome of average. The photos promise much; in fact my own photo looked as good as the tourist office version. But when you are there it is actually surprisingly unremarkable. The river is barely flowing, quite a bit of litter. The area is interesting to explore but my breath was not taken away. Allow a full 3 minutes... More

we've all seen the famous postcard view of Girona with the painted houses along the river, and it really IS like that. A series of interesting bridges takes you back and forth between the old city and the newer area. Most of the ground floors of these buildings are given over to bars and restaurants so you can sit and... More

Just like the pictures, very pretty. On the bank away from the main city the views of the cathedral's and churches is gorgeous especially at dusk and night.

It's not a huge river, but it's clean with some carp. With the coloured buildings in the background it's great for pictures. It's also near Lance Armstrong's apartment.

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

River Onyar between new and old town Girona is great river to see. Its not wide, nearly narrow but anyway the scene is marvellous and very impressive. Nice looking little colourful houses both sides of river, bridges and canals reminded me a bit Venice or St Petersburg, but in miniatyre. You have to only take a few steps from river... More
