Girona is probably the most rustic city in Catalonia

Grab a hire car in Girona and call in on the "Call"
Within easy reach in a hire car "El Call de Girona”, the Jewish Quarter, is characterised by its originality: the narrow streets, old houses and courtyards, and small “plaças” where weary travellers can rest haven’t changed over hundreds of years. The Jewish Museum tells the story of the historic neighbourhood.
Spring in Girona sees the start of the "temps de flors", roughly translated as flowering time and appreciated by tourists and locals alike. This is when the whole city is lined with many floral statues and works of art. This event brings the lanes and alleys of the old Jewish Quarter back to life in a special way. From Girona you can also decide to drive to the Pyrenees or to Salvador Dalí's Figueres and discover the uniqueness of the region.
By car from Girona to the breath-taking Costa Brava
Another must for tourists is the west coast. Rugged rocks rise from the crystal-clear waters and a gentle sea breeze wafts the scent of pine. The entire Costa Brava, which stretches 220 kilometres to France, is dotted by towns and villages of all sizes. You are in easy reach of the whole Costa Brave in a hire car picked up in Girona. Drive along the C31 in your cabriolet and relish the route that promises sun, sand and adventure. In addition, the added independence of a hire car means you can stop off spontaneously at any beach that tempts you to take a dip and soak up the sun. And you can do this many times, just as you like. There are many impressive villages on the Costa Brava, like Begur, and the somewhat larger towns of Roses and Cadaqués, not far from the birthplace of Salvador Dalí.
