Costa Brava – Cruise Ports


Girona cuisine expresses the richness of a land open to the Mediterranean Sea providing many varieties of fish and seafood, and an inland zone producing a superb range of fruit and vegetables, as well as a wide choice of top-quality red and white meat.

In the hands of chefs combining tradition and imagination, this range of products has made Girona a first rate gastronomic venue and an ideal place to enjoy the local rice dishes, suquets, blue fish, red meat, “sea and mountain” combinations, and a wide variety of other culinary delights.
