The tourist information office have 3 good maps of Girona, Spain. There are descriptions of each one below.
Review 1: Girona City Centre Map.
Map name: "Ajuntament de Girona" - Free of Charge
This map is a paper map that shows the whole of Girona city centre, including the Historic Jewish quarter and the more modern part of town across the river. It is good to use as a street map as it has the streets clearly marked. It also shows where the tourist information offices are, taxi ranks, public toilets, parking, bus and train station, and interesting historical buildings.
It also has a photograph and description of each historical building in 6 languages. It has suggested walking routes around the Historic quarter which are handy if you want to see all the best architecture. It also features the contact numbers and web addresses of the major museums in Girona, and all the contact details of the 3 tourist information offices.
Review 2: Girona Historic Quarter and Girona Centre Map.
Map name: Girona Turistguia. This is A Free Map
This is a glossy map that has an intricate 3D drawing of the Historic quarter on one side and a larger plan view of the whole of Girona on the other side. I found it very useful for walking through the Historic quarter.
There's a small part of this Girona map that covers the whole of the province. This is useful for seeing the main entry roads into the area. You'll also see photos and information about buildings of interest throughout Girona, and a directory of shops, bars and restaurants. The map is free.
Review 3: Girona Province Map.
Map name: Costa Brava: Pirinea de Girona "Treasure Map"
This is the largest map of Girona, but I think it is really useful if you want to explore the whole province of Girona. It is, as it's name suggests, a guide to the "treasures" of Girona. It covers in detail all the roads in the province and gives several itineraries for discovering the most secluded coves and beaches, valleys, lakes, castles and gardens.
It's full of useful contact telephone numbers and has photos of several attractions with descriptions in 7 languages.
4. Google Map
On the official website of the Costa Brava tourist information, there is a link to an interactive map.
The town hall also have an online Girona map.
This map is faster to download, but all the notes are in Catalan. There is the option to enlarge it to view specific details such as bus routes, but it isn't very clear once it has been enlarged.
There are several maps available to buy that cover the area from Girona to Barcelona.
If you contact the tourist information office in Girona and ask them to send you a map they will.
