Independence Square in Girona (Catalonia)

Recently, I visited Girona, the capital of the province of the same name in Catalonia. I only spent a few hours in the city, but the time I spent there was enough to make me wish to repeat the trip. The photo is from Independence Square (Plaça de la Independència), one of the best-known and most frequented places in the city.

The photo is from Independence Square (Plaça de la Independència), one of the best-known and most frequented places in the city. The name refers to the War of Spanish Independence against Napoleon Bonaparte, and is not related to the recent attempts of the Catalan people to gain their independence. In the center of this neoclassical square, you can see a monument dedicated to the defenders of the city during the sieges from 1808 to 1809.
