We search for a hotel near the station because our train to Madrid leaves very early the next morning. We decided for Hotel Europe, only few steps away from the station.
An evening in Girona
Since it is early evening, we opted for a stroll in the old town. We already experienced the city during the day, but we do not want to miss the medieval ambiance at night.
Via the Place de Catalunya we go to Placa de l’Oli, where we have dinner in a restaurant with outdoor serving.
Few people are on the streets and some sellers sit bored in their shops. There is little business also in the restaurants and bars. Except in those with a TV.
FC Barcelona plays against Bayern Munich in the champions League. FC Barcelona wins with 3: 0. We thought it might be better not to reveal as Germans, but our fears are groundless. At the end of the game, hardly any cheering can be heard. It almost seems as if one has expected the result anyway. Thereafter, the streets were even emptier.
The partly scanty illumination in the medieval streets makes us instinctively think that a night watchman, with a lantern in one and a halberd in the other hand, turns around the corner and announces the full hour.
We cross the Onyar river via the Pont de Pedra. A construction, that does not fit in the Middle Ages, stings into the eye. It is a flying guest room, the
VOL Espai Gastronòmic
The VOL Espai Gastronomic is a showcase of traditional Catalan cuisine, especially from the Girona region. It is a platform where a selection of the top Chefs of Catalonia offer their creations to a small groups of max. 18 people, 7 m above the Onyar river.
Again, we have gained some new impressions of a beautiful city and walk satisfied back to the hotel.
By the way did you know that Girona has the world’s highest concentration of top Chefs with a Michelin star, based on the total population? Check out the Ultimate Girona Restaurants Guide – The Best Restaurants in Girona
