Our house is full of fascinating nooks and crannies. We’d like to show them to you and make you feel at home with us. In the front garden, you’ll find one of our summer festivities, the Festa Major de Sant Narcís, patron saint of Girona, with music and revelry.

The spiral staircase will take you to the tower of La Seu Vella in Lleida: climb the 238 steps and you’ll discover a view of the city that’ll take your breath away. It’s 60 metres high.
