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.

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.

I thorough enjoyed wandering around this area if Girona. It is very calm and peaceful - very unspoilt. There are beautiful stepped streets and talk walls which must offer welcome shade in the summer. Lovely.

We loved this area and walked around and visited the Jewish museum but it wasn't until we took our Segway tour that we found out the secrets of this area. take a tour of some sort. It's a fascinating period of time and history.
