Simply put, camping near Girona enables you to have a look at heartland Catalonia!
A resourceful city
On a practical side, Girona is home to camping Amfora's nearest airport and to Espai Gironès shopping centre. That always comes in handy when you're travelling with the minimum gear... and want to bring back some items bought on location! Food, clothes or crafts, you'll certainly find something to remember your holidays by or to bring back to your loved ones who stayed home.
From a holiday goer point of view, going camping near Girona will obviously put you in the best spot to visit a wonderful city. First things first, you should know, and will quickly notice, that Girona is divided into 2 clearly separate areas by the river Onyar. You'll also certainly feel that Girona has a certain vibe of Tuscany and even Florence with its cypresses and red or ochre houses. You will love strolling along its narrow streets and alleys, most particularly carrer Força that ends in front of the imposing Saint Mary's cathedral. Once you've reached the top of its gigantic stairs, you'll see that it has no less than the largest nave in the world after Saint Peter's in Rome! So, Italy once again but don't be mistaken: you'll still be camping near Girona!
If you're a Game of Thrones fan (who isn't?), you can spend some time spotting some places, streets, squares you've seen in the show: many scenes taking place in King's Ladding were shot in Girona (and Dubrovnik in Croatia).
Camping in Girona: the heart of Catalonia
An extremely lively and active one, the city is often referenced to as being heartland Catalonia: Catalonian culture and traditions (not to say language) are even more noticeable than in Barcelona for instance (which is a much more cosmopolitan city). It was a also a stronghold of resistance against fascism during the Spanish civil war in the 1930s: some streets and walls still bear the woulds and traces of this dreadful period...
On a lighter side, Girona gets literally covered in flowers during the month of May and the "El temps de flors" exhibition – "the season of flowers". You can't miss this! See also the old city centre's ramparts and the 7 museums, including a surprising museum of cinema, thanks to Camping Amfora, your campsite near Girona.
