A perfect walk, especially on a warm and sunny day, starts from the Devesa Park
, the largest public park in Catalonia
, which is close to the centre of Girona
and bordered by the River Ter
. Head for La Copa
which is outside the smaller of the two Tourist Information offices and is a meeting place for taking tours of the city. From here walk across the pedestrian bridge with great views of both Sant Feliu
church in the foreground and Girona Cathedral
further back up the hill. Head to the left of Sant Feliu
(the church with the top of it's spire missing) and when you come to the Archeology Museum
(in another converted Romanesque
church) follow the road on the left which runs parallel to a stream.
Now we are in the Sant Daniel
valley where you pass the Font del Bisbe
a water fountain that come from underground sources discovered in Roman times, the water is highly mineralised but very refreshing in the hot summer months. Less than a kilometre along this valley we come to the Monastery of Sant Daniel
which an ancient building and is still in use today.
From here be sure to find the sign that says Castell de Sant Miquel
which is where the countryside begins and the going gets a bit tougher.
