A hilly area of cobbled streets, which can be difficult to negotiate. However, it is worth some effort, as it full of character. The narrow lanes and alleys take you through history, through the large ancient city walls.

We had read many things about this and were disappointed. We've visited other Jewish centers/synagogues in Spain that were better (particularly in Barcelona and the small one in Besalu). The location is pleasing, as is the whole city of Girona.

The Call is the historic Jewish quarter of Girona, very active from the middle ages through the 15th century. In 1492 Spain forced the conversion or exile of the Sephardic Jews who had lived there for many centures. Modern Girona celebrates the many years of Jewish culture with a lovely museum and a walk around the historic Jewish quarter in... More

It is much more than a simple museum. It is also the actual venue of the old jewish section of girona. The visit includes the excavations done in the area, including the mikve. Also at this place there is a research team, working in the heritage of the jewish culture at Girona. Fantastic place to be visited!

Here is a lovely old city, bisected by a narrow river, with postcard-worthy houses and churches crowding the riverbanks and a number of bridges providing easy access to both banks. A broad ramblas is teeming with shops and outdoor cafes. Many interesting churches plus an historic Jewish quarter and museum. Well worth a good portion of a day.

I walked around here for well over an hour, just trying to see everything and take it all in, if you are in the city and don't go to this area you are foolish

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.

Very well displayed and interesting. Gave a very good idea of Jewish living. Found no lift slightly difficult on stairs. Disapointed that there were not more visitors in attendance and also found it a little difficult to locate but a very enjoyable experience.
