This part of the city is particularly pleasant to stroll around and take in the ambience. The stonework on the buildings is very interesting I also enjoyed visiting the baths which is only €2 and will only take 20 minutes. There are lots of bars and restaurants in this area to choose from.

The streets of the old town are a wonderful place to meander and provide perfect shade in hot weather. The Jewish quarter is small but very interesting. A step back in time.

A small part of the Old Town with restaurants and shops. It also has the Jewish Museum and shop, which is well worth the visit. Take a half hour out of your day.

I have learned the history if the Jews mostly from the history classes in the school added by horrible visits to some concentrating camps. This museums deepened my knowledge a lot starting with a impressive multi-lingual film. In Girona, the remarkable rise of wealth and influence ended like elsewhere ended in a tragic and violent way. Still I do not... More

We visited Girona as a part of our holiday in Malgrat de Mar. My personal opinion - you need at least 2 or 3 days to feel the atmosphere of Girona and to pay attention to the most of the sites in the town. Unfortunately we had only a day and hope my experience will be useful for those who... More

Loved the old city, the history and discovering something around every corner. Lots of places to eat in the old section or go over the bridge to the new part of the city

It is hard to believe that such a flourishing community could disappear, but disappear it did. The narrow streets are evocative of the centuries of human habitation in Girona, not just Jewish. If you go to the Jewish museum you will be in the Jewish quarter. Wear sturdy shoes.

The quarter is really a few narrow streets, but the Jewish Museum holds the history of a place that was once vibrant and busy with intellectual debate and discourse. Only the streets and a few headstones remain. The museum is well laid out chronicling the history of Jews and Christians in this area done in a simple but most pleasing... More

Hilly, narrow streets, medieval feeling. Nothing Jewish remains except the building housing the jewish museum and shop. Interesting to note its proximity to the cathedral .
