    Worth taking the time to walk around the walls
    Be advised that the entrance by the Cathedral is around behind it and up past the art museum, not the other side that leads to a walk through gardens as we discovered. A fair amount of steps so you need to be mobile, but it is worth it for giving a good view over the city. Can be hot so have water with you and take your time - 1/2 to 3/4 hour minimum, but may well be longer. If you come down at the Market end of the walls there is an excellent gelateria as you come to the road leading back into the old city and a small café restaurant that is more "local".

    Not to be missed!
    This is such a highlight in Lovely Girona! You can't miss the walls, it's free and easy to do on your own! The views along the walls are spectacular, especially as you look back into the walled city. We walked the walls starting near the Arab baths and walked the whole way to the end. This is the easier way to go, as there are many stairs to climb up if you go the opposite way. After exiting the walls, we turned and right and had a short walk back, enjoying a gelato along the way.

    Lovely walk and view of Girona, with enough medieval characteristics for the child in us
    Great walk! We enjoyed the views and the little nooks and crannies. We parked on the street near the Institut d'Estudis Gironins, walked into the parking lot below and then had trouble figuring out how to get to the path. We ended up scrambling up a sort-of path in the northeast corner. You can ALSO walk past the Institut (a red hatch-marked sign had scared us off) on the road to its right and then take a left after the building for easier access.

    Awesome walk
    We started our self-guided tour of Girona at the walls. It was fun to explore the pathways and various lookout spots to view the city and mountains. Lots of stairs and cobblestone. There are many entry and exit points.

These city walls kind of summed up Girona for us. We had very little knowledge if any of the city beforehand but were blown away by the architecture and history. These Walls are the best demonstration of that I can think of.

True there isn’t lots of information to see about in around the place but we had prepared by downloading a free city app which told us everything we needed to know.

You need sturdy shoes as they do take some climbing and occasionally there are turrets along the way with spiral staircase as you can walk up. The views are breathtaking!

The history is remarkable and they are kept immaculately.

I must see if you are in town.

Girona is a very beautiful city. Here you can not only walk along the old streets, but also climb the walls and see everything from a different angle. The beginning of the construction of the Fortress Walls dates back to 75 AD. Then they represented a fortification system, thanks to which the city was well protected from attacks, which happened quite often in those days.

Even if you only do a short section of the Walls, you must do it for the magnificent views of this lovely city. Plus it’s totally free. Access points onto the walls are not particularly well signposted on the ground, but tourist maps have them marked. There are various towers along the walls where you can get an even higher vantage point. We just did one section from near the Arab Baths to the University.

Learn a bit of history and see the beautiful city from a different perspective on the wall walk. Well preserved in general, bring a hat and water, you can walk from one side of the city to the other on the walls. There are a lot of stairs, and, at times, the path gets a bit convoluted, but getting lost is part of the exploration! There is not a lot of public information or signposts, a free tourist map will help though.

The old wall walk in Girona is free and has some great views over the city and surrounding area. From the old town, it is quite a climb up to the base of the wall and then some more stairs up onto the wall itself. We just did lots of short rests on the way and were fine.

A relaxing languid stroll of an evening was a wonderful way to close the day. Panoramic vistas of the cityscape were grand to admire.

Over about an hours we had a memorable experience of exploring the former defences with towers, now a must-do attraction.
