We had to the opportunity of seeing the Onyar after three days of rain this past week. The waters were high and murky but that did not take away from its beauty. It perhaps made it a bit more interesting. I recommend taking the time to walk all 11 bridges that cross the section of river that divides the old and new town.

Possibly the most photographed River in Catalonia is the River Onya with it's many brightly painted houses of the riverfront. I think the best place to get photos of these colourful houses is between the bridges of Pont de Pedra and Pont de Feliu, which look just like the photos of the Girona tourism posters :-).

Lets just be correct here, this review is for the RIVER not anything else, so keep it all about the river.

It needs more water. It was pretty low in August. The river is clean indeed for a large European city and the birds and fish you can see add up to its charm but the most attractive feature is the buildings and their colors. Perfect place for photos, of course a few attached.

Other than that...its just a small river and you will see it one way or the other...

walking on either side of the river when possible you can enjoy the colourful building that is Girona.
The ancient city was also filmed for the last serie of game of throne

Parts of the river are of concrete. I am guessing this is to control the banks and flooding.
The part with the most water was under the Eiffel bridge.
On a calm day you can take a picture of the buildings and their refection in the water. Turn over the picture and you will wonder which is water and which is sky.
Very tranquil place.

The Colored houses of Onyar are the main postcard of the city and we stay hosted in a apartment in the Rambla de la libertá, very close of the Casas de Onyar. Actually the Onyar River was very dry and we saw the same in Besalu, I really don't know if is the same river, maybe is something seasonal, anyway the houses are more beautiful at the photo.

This features on most of the photos of Girona given the river runs right through it and is surrounded by the colourful houses and crossed by a number of bridges including the Eiffel bridge. You sort of can’t miss it if in the old town.
The times of day provide a whole range of photo opportunities as the light changes

this is an amazing place to view the colourful house constructed along the river, it gives vibrance and energy to see and live in such environment.

The city of Girona transforms into a historical space with all the stone walls and lovely streets. Was equally excited to see tons of cyclist in the city.

While the river itself isn't much to see, what with low water levels (at least in September) and graffiti along walls, it sets the stage for a beautiful walk in Girona. The river separates the city into the the old district and new, which makes it nice for navigation. Along the river you will find a myriad of parks/benches, coffee shops, and restaurants. It's really difficult to avoid the river if you're visiting Girona.
