The city of Girona and its region, called the Girončs. More than a thousand years of history watch over this small, harmonious city, which has managed with the utmost of care to preserve the legacy of all the eras and sensitivities that have left their mark on the city.

In an old quarter that takes pride in each and every one of the stones that dress its medieval facades, the most notable attractions include the Jewry, an exemplar of the Jewish quarter that is unique in the world, the cathedral, a singular example of Gothic architecture, its museum, with the Creation Tapestry and the Beatus the wall enclosing the old quarter, and the recently inaugurated Cinema Museum, the only one of its kind in Europe.


The Girončs region proudly displays the works of one of our country's most famous Modernist architects, Rafael Masó, whose legacy is basically concentrated in the city of Girona. With a highly personal architectural style that is nevertheless always loyal to tradition, a tour of Rafael Masó's works should include the Masó, Ensesa, Batlle and Colomer houses, with more special attention given to the buildings that make up the Teixidor flour mill and the Casa de la Punxa (located on Santa Eugčnia avenue). These emblematic works show that Masó was a kindred spirit of Gaudí's.
