Girona views, Catalonia, Spain

Girona Part One

Girona – northern Spain’s largest city lies 62 miles north of Barcelona. Its position has been fought over many times by the French just 40 miles to the north. Wilfred the Hairy the Count of Barcelona, incorporated it within Barcelona’s power in 878.

It is a beautiful City full of pastels, history, alcoves (or is it nooks and crannies), cathedrals. From the Catalan flags you can feel it is Catalan in spirit, rarely a Spanish flag in sight.

The colour of the buildings really sing with warmth in the mid-day sun even though the tones are pastels. They change again in the evening light.

You can see I find the red metal latticework of Pont d’en Gómez interesting and adds drama with different framing opportunities.
