Girona, Catalonia – Spain

Girona is located about 100km northeast of Barcelona. From Barcelona, it took about 1.5hrs hours drive on a Saturday. It is a pretty medieval city with Roman trails and remains, Jewish quarter, cathedral, cafes, art museums and displays, and many interesting shops and flea market.

Leona de Girona – this is a statue of a lioness climbing the pole. Kissing the bottom of it signifies that the person would one day return to Girona.

Houses of the rich and poor – the rich have plastered walls (red), the poor leave them as is (stone wall)
