I recommend to visit this place in winter. The weather is great for a good walk. The city is small with lots of alleys and gardens. The views from the wall are great.

Highly recommend the walk around the old city walls as it gives fantastic views across Girona and beyond. We started at the North, there are some steep sections and steps but overall it is not too difficult. The view from the roof provides great views...More

A view that’s worth the stairs. Be sure to leave time to walk the entire wall. One of the best things in Girona.

Just an immense overwhelming feeling of history when you get to the top of the stairs and see the view and the wall. I was in awe! I had to walk across to the other side as I was so captured by the view! It...More

You can access this wall by a few starting points. It is a free attraction with amazing views! Find a map at a visitors center or the jewish museum to see the starting and ending points. The actual walk is not that long if your...More

Well preserved city wall. Easy walk took about 20-30 minutes depending on how long you took to look around. For me much better than the Dubrovnik city walls because they were relatively empty. Best to visit in the week rather than weekend.

Visited Girona for the first time in October 18. The city is lovely and the old city walls are a relatively easy walk and offer spectacular views of the city. There are steps at one end so the easiest way round is to start behind...More

We were staying in France and drove the 1.5 hours to the city - we loved every minute of the 3 hours that went so fast......

I am not hugely fit or mobile but I found the walls were quite easy to negotiate especially if accessed from the path opposite the Arab Baths. The views are amazing.

I would include Besalu. Take the bus from just off the Passeig de Gracia. Take the bus from there to Girona and train back to Barcelona. Very nice day trip.

I agree with the prior answer and would add that there is often live musicians in the ruins/park behind the cathedral. It is slightly uphill from the back of the church. Girona is a world class bicycling City, I would find a... More

Day Trip at Girona (4 Replies)
Hello - My family and I are visiting Barcelona all of next week. We would like to do a day trip to Girona. I have a few questions around that: 1. For the AVE high speed train, which origin station do we board at from Barcelona? 2. What are the places we must visit during our day trip? I have come up with the below list. Does this sound right? o Passeig de la Muralla o Jewish Quarter o Girona Cathedral (Catedral) 3. How do we travel between these places in Girona? Is there a metro...More

Girona is very compact, everything is at a 10-15 min walk. No need to build a metro there! For the AVE high speed train, you must board it at Barcelona Sants. But there are also MD trains which are very comfortable and cheap to go to Girona that also stop at Passeig de Gràcia and Clot Arago, and it takes only an hour and a bit more.

Girona City Walls - Passeig de la Muralla (1 Replies)
Hi, we are planning to walk along the city walls in Girona over the Christmas period. Are the city walls open for walking everyday, including Christmas eve, Christmas day and Boxing day? Are there any opening/closing times? We were wondering if any local authority may put up a barrier to block access during this period? Also, is there any sort of "admission" fee to walk on the city walls. Would appreciate some answers and I don't seem to be able to find the information online anywhere. Thank...More

We have walked the city walls a few times. There is definitely no fee.
