Girona - The old town

The ancient city of Girona is very picturesque, every corner you turn gives you a different view and a different photograph to take. If possible, visit out of season when the streets are quieter so that your photos dont have too many unwanted guests in them!

During the summer season the temperatures are very hot and humid here, even more so than on the coast. Some of the best photographs to be taken are around the Jewish quarter, where the streets are very narrow and cobbled.
