Catalunya is divided into four provinces, Barcelona, Lleida, Tarragona and Girona. Girona city is the capital of this province and is located on inland from the Costa Durada. Figueres is also a prominent large town in the Girona Province.
This page is about things to do and see in the Girona province inland from the coast in and around the towns and cities. Being that the Girona province borders with France there are some interesting fortresses and walled towns that have their origins in roman and Medieval times.
Both Girona and Figures have some interesting and world famous museums. Figueres is home to the Dali museum as well as the largest 18th century fortress in Europe, Castilo Sant Feran. Girona annually hosts a flower festival, Temps de flors, where the streets of the medieval part of town are decorated with floral displays.
