Girona – One of the world’s top 10 food destinations

The city of Girona in North Eastern Spain has been deemed one of the world’s top 10 food destinations, and is well-worth a visit for a taste of a number of traditional Catalan dishes. Girona is a city in northeastern Spain, and is a hub of culture and cuisine thanks to its location between Catalonia and France. The city is well-known for its many cities and monuments, including the world’s largest medieval cathedral, the Episcopal seat of Girona, and has been described as a “sheltered city” by the New York Times. Alongside food culture, Girona offers a cornucopia of historic treasures from Muslim rule, medieval history and the Catalan Renaissances.

On the mountainside, there are few buildings that are not fully constructed with stone. This beauty is, in fact, what makes Girona so unique. This city is one of the few in the world where the architectural design of the city is so similar to medieval European castles.
