Situated in the historic centre of the old town. An interesting area of winding streets and alleyways which have not changed, in many years.,

Wandering around this highly evocative area of Gerona is very interesting. It is now full of creative craft shops selling clothes, jewellery and many other stylish things. However, the entire area reminds one of much darker days for original occupants.

In the heart of one of Spain's best-preserved Jewish Quarters, the museum presents a very compelling narrative, reconstructing a hidden history

We loved this area of Girona and took to wandering the narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter. It was easy to feel the history beneath your feet. There are many interesting shops to visit and friendly cafes where you can stop to rest, have a snack or a drink. This charming area of Girona is absolutely beautiful.

Narrow winding streets and very picturesque, but hard to know what lay behind the walls and nothing along the alley ways to mark out any key points, no doubt given the expulsion in 1482 and lack of detailed knowledge now. Sobering history.

Giona's Jewish Quarter comes from the Christians building a wall around the Jews to keep them out of the Christian area. Luckily for us, it resulted in a beautiful area of old houses and windy streets. It is, however, a bit scary to be there at night alone. Furthermore, it's almost impossible to get a photo that captures the beauty... More

Go there on Sunday with my family. Very quiet, not many tourists. You can feel the ancient atmosphere with old arched doors, winding corridor, castle walls. And you can stroll along the small alleys to the Onyar river, Eiffel bridge, Girona Cathedral, etc. But reminded, most shops are closed on Sunday. So if you would like to buy some souvenir,... More

Ancient narrow streets echoing wit the footsteps of the previous inhabitants. Very atmospheric, especially if you can get away from the crowds
