We enjoy visiting Jewish museums where possible although this in no way identifes our religion. This museum is situated obviously in the old part of town. We were unaware that the Jewish community had been "expelled" from Gerona in the late 15th century. The museum is located in the Call of Gerona in the building which was previously the Synagogue....

Beautiful narrow streets alive with small restaurants, bars, shops and scenic attractions. The famous river is one boundary. The cathedrals and most attractions are in or near the quarter. During Girona's festival, evenings are vibrant in the quarter. A huge market adorns the park just across the river.

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.

check out the museum and they will direct you to other spots. There are a few hidden gems in the quarter, will have to ask around though

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
