If its a first date or a birthday celebration with your life partner, Girona is a city that invites romanticism. Dinner and a walk through the old part of the city guarantees an unforgettable night. Today we make a compilation of the essential places to spend the perfect romantic night.
Sant Domènec uphill and Le Bistrot
We could not start the ranking of the most romantic corners of the city without first mentioning the most charming corner of Girona: the stairs to Sant Domènec. The combination of the architectural elements that make it, make these stairs a unique place where it seems time has stopped. These stairs are also very special, since they are one of the main attractions of the Girona Temps de Flors Festival.
The restaurant Le Bistrot is hidden in the middle of the staircase, a well known place by all the people of Girona. Although it may seem small from the outside, The inside is much bigger… and it is always crowded! Le Bistrot has something that makes you feel like in France: its furniture and interior design, the terrace … When the weather is warm, the tables of the Café fill the stairs, and with their candles and decoration they make it a quiet and cozy space to dine with your partner or with friends.
Lets not forget that a few years ago, this emblematic establishment was chosen as the most romantic corner of the Spanish State. The perfect setting for a perfect date!
The entire old town is an ideal setting for a first (or second or third or fourth) date. However we want to highlight a specific spot: the Jardins dels Alemanys. The views they offer of the city of Girona are spectacular. If you have the chance at sunset, the atmosphere is tinged with an intoxicating light… Absolutely romantic!
The bridge over the river known as Pont d’en Gómez, or de la Princesa, has not escaped the romantic fashion of hooking padlocks to the railing as a symbol of eternal love. A ritual that causes controversy where it starts with the aesthetics and fragility of the bridges. Beyond all this, this bridge formed by a single arch, is undoubtedly one of the most charming to walk with the couple.
