Or so has it been considered by a Belgian travel site about Europe (http://www.europeanbestdestinations.com/top/best-romantic-destinations-in-europe-3/), along with a few others you can check. To be honest, I don't think so, but it's always a good excuse to post beautiful pictures of it.

Girona is the capital city of the North-Eastern area of Catalonia.

I've been there a couple of times.
Very pleasant place, very overlooked, almost unknown (foreigners are so strongly attracted to Barcelona that no one minds to leave the motorway and make a stop there).

It's kinda like a smaller Florence, in a narrow plain surrounded by low mountains with a river in the middle:
