The HIGHLIGHT and "must see" in Girona is "The Museum of Jewish History" located in the Jewish Quarter (The Call). For more than 6 centuries, Jews were an integral/important contribution to the life of the City. Sadly, by 1492 ALL Girona Jews had converted, been killed or fled. As a way to remember the Jewish Legacy of Girona, in 1987... More

Very old and interesting showing what Spain was originally like. Well worth a visit even if it is only for a few hours. There are a lot of cobbled streets in this area and care is needed. Not really a place for people with walking difficulties

We visited during the flower festival in May, which in my opinion is well worth timing your visit with. During the festival there are over 100 exhibits dotted around the city, with many in the Jewish quarter.

Quiet, comfortable and really nice. Great landmarks in this old town suburb in the city of Girona. It's really quiet and beautiful, not too much touristic, but with great restaurants and shops.

We loved hearing about the Jewish history and seeing many interesting artifacts, but I had heard about the "baths" and was a bit disappointed with what I saw. Still well worth the visit.

One of the most well preserved,with a wonderful little museum.Well worth a visit,just don't go there on a Sunday of the spring flower festival as we unfortunately did.From midday the crowds were in their thousands and it was impossible to appreciate.
