Overview

3 hoursMobile & paper tickets accepted

The Jewish neighbourhood of Girona is one of the best preserved in Europe.
This district located in the heart of the city is full of ancient remains from its Roman and Medieval past. Known popularly as the "Call", this area was home to 1000 inhabitants during the Middle Ages, making it one of the most important Jewish communities in Spain's history. As you explore the pretty narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter, the hometown of Nahmanides, the Medieval Kabbalistic philosopher, you'll visit the spots where the city's 3 synagogues were located, you will find out all about the customs and traditions of the Jewish people. You'll also visit the Museum of Jewish History to learn about their way of life. Your guide will then lead you around the labyrinthine streets while explaining the history of the Expulsion of the Jews in 1492, an act that ended 600 years of coexistence. After this visit you'll have newfound knowledge of about the influence that the Jewish community left in Girona.
