The provincial town of Girona lives at the gentle pace of the waters of the Onyar, on whose banks its colourfully picturesque houses stand in rows. Cross one of the bridges to admire this scene that is worthy of a Cubist painting and calls to mind Florence. Then take to the right bank to see the upper town and its delightful maze of little streets running alongside arcaded squares and elegant medieval residences. There is also plenty of interest in the modern town, which is on the left bank.
