We visited Girona, Spain, last week and spent time in the Call, the medieval Jewish area of the city. What a lovely time! The streets are narrow, some very steep and winding. It was well preserved and maintained. We visited the Museu d'història dels jueus. A gem of a museum, with nice exhibits and housed in an authentic house from... More

It's very beautiful area. Stylish lanes and shops. Quiet and nice. It will take about 30 min to walk around quickly.

What a beautiful way to spend an afternoon. We meandered our way along tiny streets culminating in a visit to the Cathedral at the top, itself stunning with clean stonework.

It seems like a world apart, secretive and hidden, separate from yet at the heart of the surrounding Christian community, a place of refuge for people aware of the constant danger of attack from outside.

One of the most beautiful places I've ever visited. We spent an afternoon wandering around the narrow streets of The Call and it was so exciting seeing what was around every corner. Be aware though, there are a lot of steps, wear comfy shoes!

Don't go into the Call expecting to see a lot of markers or monuments. Go into the Call just to be there, and wander the medieval streets. The Jewish Museum is worth a stop, but just the environment is the draw. You can feel the past there. Grab a Nutella crepe and wander.

You will love roaming these winding, narrow streets and passages - all well preserved and historic. Once a year every May when the weather is very comfortable, people come from all over to see displays of floral artistry. There are places such as the monastery grounds that are only open to the public during this week. That and the many... More

I stopped by Girona on my way to Figueres (Dali museum) and spent about 3 hours browsing the town. It is filled with narrow cobbled paths and connects to the present and the past. The center of town was only 1o minutes walk from train station. Lots of restaurants and fine cafe bakeries!

Beautiful, small, narrow roads. Excellent for morning and evening walking. The neighborhood takes you back to other centuries. Very well preserved buildings. Whatever new has been allowed to it, it has respected the original architecture and atmosphere of the area.
