We walked through here with a guide and the history of the area was very interesting. The streets are narrow with some stairs with lots of tall buildings, which are great for photos.
Jewish Quarter narrow beautiful streets in Girona.I recommend you up and down the Girona's city center.
We strolled through the Jewish Quarter as part of our short stay in Girona. It is very interesting, although perhaps by this point in a long trip (5 weeks) there was some sense of deja vu setting in. That said, the Jewish Quarter and indeed all of the 'old' area of Girona was very much enjoyed. For us, Girona was a 'spur of the moment' decision and a good one as it turned out. Notable in the Jewish Quarter are the very narrow streets and extensive old stone structures.
We enjoy visiting Jewish museums where possible although this in no way identifes our religion. This museum is situated obviously in the old part of town. We were unaware that the Jewish community had been "expelled" from Gerona in the late 15th century. The museum is located in the Call of Gerona in the building which was previously the Synagogue. Steep street to access but worth the visit. The Cathedral is located just a few hundred metres beyond.
Very interesting,and old part of the City. Very picturesque andgreat to walk around imagining what it would have been like when the Jews were residents. Although not Jewish ,we always find these restored and renovated area great to visit.
Distressing and beautiful recounting of the historic Sephardic community expelled from Girona so long ago. Especially moving and distressing were the Hebrew inscribed tombstones rescued from the desecrated Jewish cemeteries on Montjuic in Girona.
just lovely place to amble around while admiring the architecture, it has all been very well conserved and plenty of interesting places to stop along the way
There is a small museum, a shop, the ritual baths and a few builing markers. The story of the Jews throughout Spain was so interesting.
old stone, great atmosphere, work a few hours on getting lost in! Make sure you wear good walking shoes!
THIS IS NOT A REVIEWThis is just FYI - Any Girona attractions that are on Tripadvisor as Jewish Quarter, The Call, Jewish Neighbourhood, should be merged into one as they are all the same place
