Getting to Girona

By car

The road network around Girona, which follows the ancient Roman roads, includes the main national motorways, connecting with France and the rest of the principality with the motorways AP-7 and A-2.

By train

Girona also has a good rail network. The high speed AVE line connects Girona with different cities in Spain and Europe, especially cities from France.

By air

Girona - Costa Brava Airport: This is the second most important in Barcelona area. It is located just 13 kilometers from Girona city, counting on regular bus (check here, line 607) and taxi service to the city center. There are many direct flights to Girona, particularly during the summer season (both domestic and international). However, the frequency is quite low compared to Barcelona.

Barcelona Airport: In the absence of flights to Girona Airport (or excessively time-consuming), traveling to Girona through Barcelona Airport is a very good option. The official name is Josep Tarradellas Barcelona - El Prat Airport, though is usually referred as just Barcelona Airport or El Prat Airport. Reaching Girona from El Prat Airport is easy, the fastest option is train. First, you must reach the train station Barcelona Sants, and then go to Girona.

Barcelona Sants station can be reached by metro from both Terminals 1 and 2 of the airport, and also by train from Terminal 2 (faster, but lower frequency). There is a free shuttle bus doing the round trip between Terminals 1 and 2 every 6 minutes.

From Barcelona Sants train station, high-speed rail (AVANT) can be taken to Girona train station, which takes about 38 minutes. There are also Medium Distance and Regional connections between Barcelona and Girona, though we strongly recommend prioritizing the high speed option since it is significantly faster and less prone to suffer from delays. Train timetables can be checked here.

Getting to the conference

The conference site is Edifici Sant Domènec, Universitat de Girona, Plaça Ferrater i Móra, 1 Campus Barri Vell, 17004 Girona

Attenders should access the building from the entrance to the Facultat de Lletres (Faculty of Arts). The conference venue is at walking distance from the city center, e.g. 22 minutes from the train station, though most hotels are closer. The last metres to reach the campus are uphill and some straight routes from the city center to the faculty pass through stairs (about 100 steps). If convenient, there are alternative routes to reach the destination by walking without stairs, and there is also a publicly available elevator at Pujada de Sant Martí, 6 to skip the slope.

There is also a local bus line (Line 7) with 30 minutes frequency that stops next to the faculty (bus stop UdG Campus Barri Vell).
