Province of Girona travel guide

4.3
Beaches · Art Museums · Landmarks
Once the territory that guarded the rugged mountain passes through the eastern Pyrenees, the Province of Girona today enjoys a prosperity largely stemming from tourism, which is especially booming along the coast. Its golden beaches hug the Mediterranean Sea. Moving uphill, off the beaten path, lush valleys lead to snowy mountains. The countryside is rich with sunflower fields and densely wooded areas. Visitors are greeted by ancient villages full of whitewashed houses and tiny alfresco cafes to tour. These are the landscapes that inspired Salvador Dalí, who lived and worked in the area for many years.
