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.

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.

We did a walking tour through here which was very informative. The streets are extremely narrow and winding with very high buildings either side. Part of Girona's Old Town. There are many birds - pidgins nesting in the walls so keep to the centre. I leaned against a wall for a short moment and was sent a "gift" from above!... More

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... More

THIS IS NOT A REVIEW This 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

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.

This beautiful part of the city of Girona is a great example of how Jewish people and Christian populations lived peacefully alongside each other at one point. However, as tensions started to rise, Jews were annexed to the Call (Jewish quarter in Catalan). A must-see is the Jewish history museum. However, due to the nature of this neighbourhood, this would... More
