With the van rental in Girona is impossible to get bored walking around the city. Its historical and artistic heritage is unparalleled but it is true that there are usually no large crowds of tourists. In addition, the city has been distinguished with the prize of Europe 2016 for promoting the ideals of the EU.
If we take a look at Girona's more remote past we discover that the first settlements in the area date back to the Indigetes, an Iberian tribe. However, Girona was not founded until the arrival of the Romans in 77 BC. Today, Girona is a city that has managed to perfectly combine the beauty of the civilizations that populated it.
The monuments and places that have made Girona famous are the following: the Cathedral of Santa Maria, the Barri Vell, the houses of the Oñar, the Jewish quarter, the Arab baths, the Carolingian wall, the Rambla de la Libertad and the Plaza de la Independencia.
Girona's gastronomy is full of contrasts as the inland dishes are totally different from those typical of the Costa Brava. The best known and most appreciated dishes are the butters and cheeses of Alto Urgel and Cerdanya, talltendre turnips, futifarras and cassoulets. don't forget to leave some room for some xuxos for dessert!
Many of those who decide to rent a van in Girona are eager to go to the beach. The city is bathed by the Costa Brava, a coastal strip with more than 200 kilometers. Do not waste time and start enjoying the wonderful Mediterranean landscapes with your Furauto vehicle.
The inland towns also have their charm so we will talk in detail about a few for you to get ideas of where you can go with family or friends:
Blanes is 40 kilometers south of the capital. To get here, you will have to drive along the A-2 and the N-2 for about 45 minutes. This is the gateway to the Costa Brava, one of the most beautiful areas of the country. Don't forget to visit the Marimurtra and Pinya de Rosa Botanical Gardens, Sa Palomera, the Church of Santa Maria or the Castle of San Juan. During its main festival, which takes place between 21 and 27 July, the largest international fireworks competition in Europe is held.
Surrounded by the Natural Park of the Empordà Marshes, this area is known worldwide for being the most important residential marina in Europe. You will reach "the Venice of the Costa Brava" in about 55 minutes from the capital, although remember that this town belongs to the municipality of Castelló d'Empúries.
The AP-7 connects the capital of Girona with Figueres in just under 43 minutes. This town, which is located in the Alt Empordà, saw the birth in 1904 of Salvador Dalí, one of the best artists of all time. Besides visiting the Castle of San Fernando, the Parish Church of San Pedro and the Toy Museum of Catalonia, you will have to visit the Dalí Theater-Museum, decorated by Dalí himself.
Visit this town in the Alt Empordà if you want to enjoy some of the best coves in Spain, such as Canyelles Petites, L'Almadrava, Cape Norfeu or Punta Falconera. The municipality is separated by 70 kilometers from the capital, so the trip will take you almost an hour and a half. Here you can also visit the Parish Church of Santa Maria, the Citadel of Roses, the Trinity Castle, the Visigothic Citadel of Puig Rom or the Megalithic Ensemble of Roses. The restaurant that was considered the best restaurant in the world, El Bulli, is located in the Montjoi cove.
You will have to drive for 44 minutes to cover the 38 kilometers that separate Girona from Tossa de Mar, one of the most touristic towns of the province. In addition to enjoying the Playa Grande, you can visit the Castle of Tossa de Mar, the Tossa Lighthouse Museum or the Torre des Moro. The 'Blue Paradise', as Marc Chagall called it, has been the setting for many films.
To facilitate Furauto customers planning their itinerary if they decide to approach Girona by road we will give a brief review of the main access routes to this city of Barcelona:
Due to the influx of traffic on this road, users of vehicles of a certain size prefer to take the freeway to Barcelona, even if it means a greater economic sacrifice and takes longer to travel.
Finding a parking in Girona is not a difficult task as there are many uncovered parking spaces where you can park your van for free. However, when it comes to subway parking spaces prices go up so it is up to our customers to choose the type of parking they are going to use.
Here we are going to opt for the most economical alternatives. Some of our proposals are the following:
