Globalisation and gentrification have had their effect on Girona, it almost goes without saying. But only up to a certain point: in the province, they've had to close a couple of McDonald's, and the nearest Starbucks is about 100km away. The thing is that Girona locals, especially when it comes to food, love the label 'de tota la vida', which basically means places that have stood the test of time and endured through generations of shoppers. We love local butchers and artisan 'orxata' (summer drink made with tiger nuts, almonds or rice), as well as the clothes shop that's always been just round the corner. Read on to discover some of the favourite places to browse and purchase of lifelong Girona and Costa Brava inhabitants.
