There is a sense that you have walked back in time here; particularly so if you wander the streets late at night when they are almost empty and lit by yellow lamps. I visited both day and night, and much preferred the latter, although those who do not have the benefit of being a well built young six foot male... More

Definitely takes you back in time as you wander in and out of alleys (ignore the souvenir shops and let your imagination take you back centuries). We self-toured whatever is left of the Jewish Quarter (having seen Besalu and Girona, where more stuff is available) and went to the old synagogue and museum for a presentation on Spanish Jewry.

Although you shouldn't be able to get lost in the charming little alleys, it is good fun trying too. A little treasure of winding small passageways of steps up and down. Hard to photograph well, but difficult to forget.

Lots of lovely winding streets and alleyways, don't forget to look up to enjoy the amazing balconies, tiles and metalwork.

Lovely quarter. Much of the Jewish history available to see is concentrated in the Jewish Museum and this covers Jewish life more than it gives specific historical material about Girona.

Taking a stroll through the Jewish quarter early in the morning or late in the evening brings you back in time. We enjoyed the peace and quiet during the morning before the tourists arrived. The walls and alleyways are fun to explore in the evening as well. Make sure you bring a good set of walking shoes to climb the... More

The Jewish Museum was a great representation of history. Great artifacts well displayed. The walkways and buildings are reminiscent of old Jerusalem

Great pic opportunities inside one of Europe's best kept Jewish Quarters. Take caution with the inclines and sometimes slippery stone walkways.

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.
