A picture of an old medieval city painted with modern watercolours. Walking around the Barri Well you can encounter beautiful shops and original smell. In fact every road has a special smell coming from a shop, that makes the walk magical.
The Girona City Walls are located in the northeast corner of Girona and circle the old city before ending at the Arab baths. You can stroll along the remains of the ancient walls that protected the city, most of which date from between the ninth and fifteenth centuries! It's one of the most beautiful parts of Girona, with great natural views.
The sanctuary of the Mare de Deu del Mont is in the mountains of Mont. The sanctuary was remodeled in 2002 and is a very welcoming place not only for its unique landscape but for its peace and quiet. On clear days you can see the Gulf of Roses.
The Pont d'en Gómez, also known as the Pont de la Princesa, crosses the River Onyar to join Plaza de San Felix with Paseo Canalejas. You can easily cross it on foot to reach the Dehesa, one of the best public green spaces in the region, and on the other side is the old town, leading to the church of Sant Feliu and the cathedral. On the way you'll pass the famous lioness, and tradition dictates that you should kiss her on the bum!
The architect Rafael Mas (1880-1935) studied architecture in Barcelona and did most of his work in the nearby province of Girona. I discovered recently at the tourist office, that there's a footpath route running through the city, so you can see the architectural footprints that this master left behind. It's a distance of about 5km (90 minutes walking), and passes some of his finest works.
