Girona airport is promoted misleadingly as “Barcelona Girona” in spite of the 90km which separate the two Catalan cities. As a result a large number of arrivals immediately rush off to Barcelona city without spending any time in Girona.
Others arrive here and transfer to their resorts on the Costa Brava. If your schedule allows then you really should try to spend some time in Girona itself which is one of Spain’s most attractive cities.

Dali Museum Figueres
The city’s main historical attractions include its Roman ruins, the charming small streets of its Jewish quarter, the Arab Baths and the magnificent cathedral which dominates the whole city from high above the Onyar River.
Many visitors arrive on day trips from Barcelona or from the many resorts of the Costa Brava. Many of these excursions combine Girona with a visit to Figueres to the north where the world famous Dali Museum is located. Many of the best works of the local artist Salvador Dali, who comes from the nearby coastal village of Cadaques, are on display here.
