“The Buildings are the Thing to See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

The river was quite full with lots of wild life swimming around, Ducks with their babies and it looked as if there was plenty for them to eat in the water. With the colourful building either side made some lovely pictures.

“Colourful houses next to the river”

Beautiful scenery! Lots of walking bridges to cross from new parts to old town with restaurants, small alleys and cafeterias.

“non existent”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

When we were there, the water was not there as it was not the season for it. So it looked nothing like the photos, as there was rather tiny ponds than a river. But got to understand that the water is not always that accessible, and needs to be utilized right

“An interesting and attractive location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

The Onyar River dissects the old and the new towns and is particularly interesting because of the colourfully painted houses that run along the river bank. There are several bridges that cross the river in central Girona and the most notable is the Eiffel Bridge. The riverside is attractive and attracts many visitors so for the best photos it is best to avoid the peak times.
