I am leaving Girona today to head to Barcelona. It is a quick train ride – less than an hour. Barcelona hotel check-in is later so I have some free time in Girona this morning. I take a morning walk and order a breakfast and a coffee. There is a flower market down the main shopping district. It seems like this market might have had more vendors in the past, perhaps another covid casualty?
There is a laundromat close to the hotel. This is a great opportunity to clean all my clothes one last time this trip. There is a nice view out the back window. I drop my bag with clean clothes back at the hotel to hold while I go out.
The Cinema Museum or Museu de Cinema has caught my eye so I decide to visit.
The museum starts with an introductory movie then you follow a series of interactive exhibits that build chronologically with the technical advancements.
The first exhibits are about the use of shadows.
I learn how they discover how to take images and make movement appear.
There are so many different cameras and projectors on display.
After the museum I walk around the city and notice a foam party in the park. Kids are digging it (no pictures out of respect).
I couldn’t resist one more stop at the Rocambolesc. I later discover this is an international chain so I have a feeling I’ll see this place again.
I stroll back to my hotel to grab my bag and head off to Barcelona. I will miss Girona. I like this quiet non-crowded town.
