Girona is located at the narrowest point of the historical route that crosses the Pyrenees, a place of passage described as both the last bridge to Africa and the first boulevard in Europe. The presence of man from the most remote stages of the Paleolithic has been archaeologically attested in its surroundings. Due to its strategic location on the Via Augusta, the Romans established a fortification there, called Gerunda , around the years 75 and 76 AD.
