Girona's restaurants have amassed 20 Michelin stars between them, while the destination's social media have grown in terms of the number of followers and user contributions. Furthermore, the 2011-2015 Strategic Tourism Plan of the counties of Girona, the 2011 Action Plan and the 2011 budget have all been approved.
This year's award winners were the businessman Josep Antoni Cuadrat, the Natural Park of the Volcanic Zone of La Garrotxa, the magazine Australian Gourmet Traveller, the German television channel Deutsche Welle TV and the researcher Marc Grijalvo.
The ski resorts of the Pirineu de Girona will fill up with skiers over the Christmas holiday period and in the first week of January with an estimated hotel occupancy rate of 95%.
