Gastronomy

An essential part of Girona’s local culture is its gastronomy. During your stay in Girona, you can enjoy cuisine of the highest quality, recognised by the best international gastronomic guides that include Michelin-star restaurants and proposals that go from traditional cuisine to a more avant-garde variety, elaborated with products from land and sea. The wines and cavas from the Alt Empordà region deserve a special mention, as does the local spirit ratafía, a sweet liqueur made with local herbs; and the cold cuts, especially the famous butifarra of Medieval origin.
