Many tourists who visit the wonderful Costa Brava, choose the convenience of a private taxi service from Girona airport, thus quickly and comfortably reaching such beautiful beaches as Platja d'Aro, Lloret de Mar, Tossa de Mar, and Cala Jonca.
This beautiful Catalan town has about 100,000 inhabitants who strenuously defend their cultural identity since the province of Girona is located right on the French border. Another characteristic of this medieval city is that it is just 90 km away from Barcelona. You can also land in other Barcelone airports and need a taxi transfer.
What to see in Girona
The main attractions include:
- Cathedral: built in the Romanesque and Gothic styles, it is located at the highest point of the city, where once there was an Islamic mosque.
- Museu d'História dels Jueus: is a museum that tells the history of the Jewish communities of Catalonia.
- Montjuïc Castle: dating back to 1600, it has played an important role in the defence of the city.
According to the latest estimates, the airport of Girona - Costa Brava has the highest rate of passenger growth; from just over half a million travellers in 1997, it now handles nearly 2 million passengers annually.
This is because it is home to many low-cost airlines, primarily Ryanair, and because it is located in the middle of the route that connects the Catalan capital to southern France. As the name suggests, the Girona - Costa Brava airport serves the entire coastal area from Blanes to the French border.
Among the services offered at Girona airport there is free Wi-Fi, a lost property office, and a Fast Track service to skip the line at security checks.
Connections to Barcelona take place via the Barcelona Bus. The negative aspect of this, in addition to the long journey, is that you will not arrive directly at your accommodation and you have to take other means to finally arrive at your desired destination.
Another way to get to the Catalan capital is to take a train that stops at Sants station.
You can also take a public taxi to Barcelona, but this is expensive, considering that the sum to be paid will not be fixed, but determined by the taximeter.
