After the re-enactment of the battle where Girona repelled a French invasion, we were treated to refreshments in the ruins of the castle. It was dark by then, but earlier I’d had a chance to see the view from the castle wall. It’s so high you can see for miles.
On this night, a few of us walked back down the hill through the dark, winding streets of the romantic old town.
This is my standard form of disclosure that I am retroactively adding to all blog posts done before April 1, 2018, and will add to all new posts.
1. Is this experience open to the public?
Yes, partly. The re-enactment is a community event, I believe. The refreshments were probably specifically for our benefit.
2. Who paid the cost of me doing this?
I did, indirectly. I went to a travel blogging conference in Girona. I paid for my own conference fee, and all my own transport and accommodations. Some of the meals were included in the conference registration, and there were some experiences included. The main sponsor of the conference (to whom I am still grateful) was Visit Costa Brava.
3. Did I get any compensation or special consideration for writing this blog post?
4. Would I be as positive about this place if I had gone as a regular visitor?
Yes. I wrote about it because it was interesting and unique.
