Girona, our province, offers visitors the opportunity to discover fascinating historical centers, natural parks, ski resorts and, of course, a great gastronomic variety which makes the delicacies of the most gourmets:

  • The anchovy from L’Escala have designation of origin, renowned by its millenary tradition of fish salting.
