Not Gerona anymore · why two names?

As you probably know -or maybe not still- here we speak mostly Catalan… even if most people understand and speak Spanish perfectly. And it is fantastic. It is a beautiful language.

During Franco's years it was kind of forbidden (not allow to learn in public schools, names changed, etc.) but now we have Catalan TV, catalan news, catalan schools; still many newspapers are in Spanish, when you call a company it is in Spanish, etc. etc.

Catalan is not a dialect it has its own literature. It souns more like portuguese or "veneto" (dilaect of italian spoken in Venezia). If you plan to study here and you speak only Spanish you will find some inconvenients…

[I have written this introduction because everybody asks me about that, specially americans]

New in Girona

As I'm living here is quite easy for me to add things happening.
This adds are difficult to know for VT foreign members who have visited and have good VT pages!

2007:
- The tower of Collegiate Church of Sant Feliu is being restored
- You have a new auditorium
- Masó Year
- see more tips at WHAT TO DO

    You might want to note that the bells might be mind numbing for those who are light sleepers. =)
