A traditional, sporty and family Christmas for all

Christmas is a time for cannelloni, wafer rolls and nougat. But beyond the five-star gastronomy of the counties of Girona, the Costa Brava and the Girona Pyrenees are full of options for everyone at Christmas. There are plenty of opportunities to live experiences and traditions, and to enjoy the festive season.

Experience the inclusive Alt Empordà by land, air and sea

The Alt Empordà is a region where the tramontana wind blows. This north wind shapes the clean, dry landscape of one of the three Girona counties with a seafront. Here, coves and beaches with crystal-clear waters and dreamlike landscapes await you. Active tourism is very present with numerous proposals by land, sea and air.

Tourism under the stars

Did you know that the planets are the brightest stars in our night sky? The summer nights are a good time to admire Venus, Jupiter and its moons, or Saturn. Enjoy the summer nights under the stars.

The Gironès, a friendly county for everyone

The Gironès is a transition region located between the Pyrenees and the sea. It is a territory with a high landscape value, a wide range of leisure and sporting activities in nature and a great legacy of heritage, commerce, services and culture. The capital, Girona, is a city with history, but also modern, cosmopolitan and friendly for all those who visit it.
