The city is split in two, separated by the Riu Onyar, which divides the more historic center of Girona of the east to the modern center of the west.
The quaint town of Tossa De Mar is a seaside town that is one of the last fortified medieval towns in the Costa Brava.

The easternmost point of the Spanish peninsula is the small beach town of L'Estartit of the Costa Brava.
