Lots of narrow corridors of steps and pathways leading up and down the hills. Loved all the old stone, beautiful buildings. Lots of interesting and unique shops. Great choice of eating places.

The J it.ewish Quarter is interesting because it is a living quarter of the city, not just shops and empty buildings. We enjoyed exploring

Sort of discovered this area by accident. We were staying in Platja D'Aro at the end of the season and had a day where we couldn't find any thing to do. Girona was a short drive away so off we went. Parked easily by the market and off for a wander. Found our way across the river and into The... More

The entire quarter is fascinating. Narrow cobblestone streets, stone stairways, alleys and the Jewish Museum will bring you back in time and teach you things you only thought you know about. Don't miss it and don't miss Gerona!

Girona recovered this area in the early 80's to give her past the beauty ang glory it deserves. While I was walking up and down the streets in the quarter I could imagine the villagers and their life in the 1400s. Mainly too because some street names refer to the jobs people had at that time. The museum in the... More

We arrived at the Jewish History Museum in the Jewish Quarter to find that the museum was closing early because of a holiday celebrated in both Girona and some other small city. The woman at the desk had the need to tell us that the museum was not a "Jewish Museum," rather it was a "History Museum" run by the... More

The Jewish Quarter in Girona is a really nice experience. And in summer is even better, because are the only streets in Girona that remain fresh in the hot! The streets and the houses are well preserved, and there is a nice interpretation centre called Bonastruc ça Porta. Really nice visit!
