Points of interest in the historic centre of Girona
Girona is one of the most important cities in south-eastern Europe, which allows you to travel through more than 2,000 years of history from two fortified enclosures, the Old Force and the Medieval Eixample. The first corresponds to the Roman foundation and the second to the extension of the walls during the 14th and 15th centuries. Its old quarter is made up of a historic-artistic complex declared a cultural asset of national interest, delimited by an imaginary line that, starting from the Gironella Tower, runs along the entire 14th-century wall up to the Carmen portal, going back along Portal Nou street to Iris Sacosta, includes all the Citizens Street from the Plaza del Aceite in the Calle del Vino, continues along the Calle de la Fuerza, deviates to include the collegiate church of Sant Feliu, continues towards San Pedro de Galligants, from there you will find the wall and returns, through the Archaeological Walk of Girona, in the Torre Gironella.
