Girona souvenirs, what to buy?

Is there anything traditional to buy from Girona or is it like anywhere in Spain? I don’t want to bother if there is nothing special to buy in Girona.

Girona has simple souvenirs that you will enjoy.

Turrón of Crema Catalana

The Girona turron is more than the famous Spanish turrón (“nougat”). This one is from recipe based on the Catalan dessert “crema catalana”. A perfect option to share at home with your family and for your travels around the region.
You can find turrones de crema catalana in several bakeries, some specialized shops for Turrón or even in the supermarket. The best area would be to go into the streets around the Cathedral.

Ceramics

Even though you can find ceramics in the all of Spain, Girona ceramics can be a nice touch to bring back home. In the surroundings of Girona, still a lot of small villages are famous for their production of Ceramics.

The best ceramics are on Carrer de L’Aigüeta, in La Bisbal
You can definitely find some of these items in the city center, around the Cathedral of Girona. Ideally buy from La Bisbal outside Girona if you have the time to drive 30 minutes.

Trias cookies and Ratafia

Probably the best thing anyone can take home after a visit to Girona is a box of Trias cookies, an assortment of almond delicacies appreciated by locals, or a bottle of ratafia (the herbal digestive liqueur) to carry back home.

Cookie boxes can be bought at any typical Girona store or even in most supermarkets, as well as the most commercial ratafia brands. To find more artisan products also typical of the area you have to visit the local shops of the city center, located in the alleys of the Old Town.
