Stunning river through the centre of Girona, with some great photo opportunities. We criss-crossed the river over the many bridges to get a perspective on both sides and the river itself.

Personally, I think this wide (and shallow) river with the coloured houses on each side is a major distinction of this city. It is the divide between the old town and the new. It is another feature that makes Gerona what it is. The river is shallow, maybe only 2'-3' deep, and you will see some large carp swimming around... More

The colored homes along thre River on a sunny day are breathtaking. Loved our stroll along the river. So beautiful. Go when the light is low to get the full affect of the stunning color along this pretty River.

It's a waterway separating Old Girona and New Girona. The colorful buildings that line the river make for great pictures.

Nothing startling about this except the design of the houses that front onto the creek in case of flood.
