The province of Girona is located in the extreme northeast of the Iberian Peninsula, bordered by France in the North.

Its territory offers a great variety of landscapes which go from the extensive beaches and magnificent cliffs of the Costa Brava to the highest summits of the Pyrenees, passing through the volcanic area of La Garrotxa, region of ancient volcanoes and areas of splendid vegetation, or the great plain of the Empordà, birthplace of some of the great Catalan geniuses such as the famous Salvador Dalí.

Throughout its geography we can find great coastal towns such as Tossa de Mar or Sant Feliu de Guíxols and small fishing villages such as Cadaqués or Calella de Palafrugell; historical archaeological sites that tell us about the presence in the area of the first settlers of the Mediterranean Peninsular, such as Ullastret or Empúries; natural protected areas such as the Volcanic Area of the Garrotxa; Marian sanctuaries hidden in the buried deep in the middle of the Pyrenees, such as the Sanctuary of Núria; small towns of mediaeval origin that have conserved all their charm, such as Pals, Peratallada or Besalú; places Dalí fell in love with, such as the Castell de Púbol, the bay de Port-Lligat or his native town, Figueres, to which he returned to live the last few years of his life after having travelled to many parts of the world…
