About Spain and the city of Girona
We are very fortunate to live in such a privileged area of Spain: Girona province. Set in the North East just before France, our province has a very mild Mediterranean climate, with very little rain and warm temperatures all year round. In winter it’s around 10º-15º C during the day and 2º to -3º at night. It rains only occasionally and we can have a swim in our turquoise blue beaches from Easter up to mid October.This workshop is held in the historic city of Girona, one of the most interesting in Catalonia, invites visitors to trace its more than 2000 years of history through fortified enclosures dating back to the Roman foundation times and the city walls (14th century). The highlights of Girona are rounded off by the impressive old Jewish Quarter or Call, with its beautiful streets and porticoed squares. Girona has managed to preserve numerous medieval and modern spaces with an exceptional atmosphere and beauty where time seems to have stood still.
Girona offers spectacular images of steep alleyways, porticoed streets and squares and, above all, the brightly painted façades of the houses overlooking the Onyar (the river that crosses the city) which provide the most emblematic image of the city. A porticoed square in neoclassical style, Plaçade la Independència is a busy place due to the large number of restaurants here. In the centre of the square stands a monument (1894) commemorating the 1809 defenders of the city of Girona.
Check this videoclip of Girona with great aerial views.
Our hotel, the Hotel Peninsular is situated in the very centre of the city only two minutes away from Plaça de la Independència and by the river Onyar in a pedestrian area.To round of this unforgettable week, we can’t miss a visit to our coast, the Costa Brava, one of the most spectacular in Spain, with a wild look of greenish turquoise waters. We will go on two painting excursions, tomagical Cadaqués in the Cape of Creus natural park, and the home of Salvador Dali, and Calellade Palafrugell, a fishing town full of character and charisma. You can’t miss this week so full of emotions and inspiration!
