The best way of getting to know a territory, until the point that you are aware of its very essence, is to live in it for a long time, using this period to make constant discoveries. Unfortunately, this privilege is reserved for those who can enjoy what they have around them without having to look at the calendar and who can make their destination into their home for some months or even for some years.
As we have said, these are exceptional cases: most of us have to travel through a country in a few days, always looking at the map and the timetables, and with the constant sensation of having missed the most emblematic places in the area.
This is why we have tried to capture the spirit of the Costa Brava and the Pirineu de Girona through a selection of the places that best summarise the personality of the Girona regions. In these places, visitors can enjoy the chance to get close to the essence of this small country, washed by the sea and protected by the mountains, without having to spend a lifetime here.
This selection of the places that could summarise the identity of our area is materialised in those we consider to be the 25 main attractions of the Girona regions, that bring together various aspects of the territory, from cultural to landscape features, without forgetting gastronomy or social events.
