When you're planning a trip to Catalonia, you'll surely want to visit the small town of
Gerona, and the best way of visiting this ancient town is with the help of our Gerona car
Despite its size, the town has been around for several thousands of years, having seen
during that time its fair share of history. Due to its location on the confluence of four
rivers, the area has been of great importance since before Roman occupation and the
settlement in and around this area has seen a lot of subsequent invasions and occupations.
This high level of historic activity means that the town's architecture is a rather varied
one, with features that range from narrow streets, to a castle and to a walled section that
is rather impressive.
The town is divided into the Old Town and the New Town, both of which however have
been pedestrianized to a large degree, a car isn't that necessary in Gerona proper, however
you will surely not want to miss out on our Gerona Airport car hire services, as you will
need a way of getting from the airport to the town, and of course if you want to explore
some of the surroundings a bit.
One has to keep in mind that Barcelona is only about an hour's drive away, so taking a
trip there can always be a possibility when you have a car at your disposal.
The town's current-day cathedral stands on the site of what used to be a mosque and it is
one of the most important monuments of the Majorcan architect Jaume Fabre and a great
example of Spanish Gothic architecture.
Considering the town's history, old fortification are something that you'll stumble onto
while walking the place. Traces of what used to be the old city wall and guard towers can
still be found in various parts of the Old Town.
These only scratch the surface of all that is to be seen and done in Gerona, make sure to
employ our Gerona car hire services in order to explore this wonderful Catalonian town
as well as its rich surroundings.
