  • As it turned out during the preparations for the visit to one of the most exciting cities in Catalonia, Girona was founded by the Romans back in zamshelom the 1st century BC, which in itself is not surprising-the Roman maniples, cohort and legions of not only trampled the Earth distant Antarctica. Researchers in one voice to assert that this castle was originally built as a fortification to protect the main road of the Iberian Peninsula-Via Augusta, which connected the capital of the Roman Empire and Seville. Sure thing. What is the military-strategic importance could not but affect the history of Girona: who just did not try to become her owner: Visigoths, Arabs, French, Spanish ... Maybe for this reason in some tourist brochures Girona referred to city of thousand sieges? Directly on the memory coming Word from the trilogy "Bratva and the ring": "I know this Mordovia. Place Deathtrap: neither people nor animals. There is one road along the cemetery ". Just a fairy tale, rather than a city! And not just the city and place dichajshih mahachej between different cultures. The last, like, was between the Jewish community and Jewish not essno. Well, the model who to us than why, that and what. In this city a fantastic variety of fairy tales/myths/legends etc., starting from the nuns, which was half-crocodile, half butterfly, finishing with "black" Street, where witches steal naughty kids and stuff. One word-city-legend! Jovial walk along the cobbled streets of Girona, surrounded by stone walls-rude, really breathing memory centuries leave indelible memories in memory of tourist Luda, IMHO. Recommend!
