If you want to take a trip through the history of Girona, head for the Museu d'Història de Girona.
The Girona History Museum is an unmissable place for two reasons: the content and the surrounds. The building, a former convent of Sant Antoni from the 18th century, has had a unique evolution: first it was a Gothic house, later it was converted into a monastery for Capuchin brothers, and at the end of the 19th century it became the Provincial Education Institute - since 1981 it has housed the Museu d'Història. Inside, you can take a trip through the city's history, from its foundation in the Roman period to the time of the Franco dictatorship. In addition, the museum hosts a varied programme of activities and temporary exhibitions.
