Pastisseria Can Xapa

If anything warrants a trip outside of the city, it is Pastisseria Can Xapa. Located in a 13th-century castle in the town of Bordils, to the northeast of Girona, this speciality chocolaterie and bakery boasts some of the finest creations around, including dark chocolate pralines and original recipes, like the gin-and-tonic cake.


Girona has a full range of shopping options, from designer fashion to traditional handicrafts and everything in between. Delicatessen is a particular strong point, with artesanal cheese shops, speciality chocolateries and great markets. There are also many craft and antique shops throughout the different shopping districts that showcase some unique items that make for perfect souvenirs and gifts.
