Internet connectivity

Hackerspaces around Girona.

Girona has a free city wifi, but you need a phone number to receive an access code.

The public library (on carrer d'Emili Grahit) has a wifi, electricity and nice working places. In April 2016 the password is written on the walls and there is no problem entering with a backpack. It is open Monday to Saturday 10-20.

Busking

There were quite some buskers in Girona in March 2017.

Like in most Spanish cities you need a permission for busking. There are some people that try without a permission and the police doesn't really care.

If you want to get a temporary license (up to 3 days a week, 3 hours a day) go to Espai Marfà (C. De Baix 2, 17006 - Girona). It's good to have an (amateur-)video of your music so they can check. They were really friendly there. It just took us about an hour there.

For a longer license go to the ayuntamiento (town hall).
