Just loved the cobblestone streets and the shops and restaurants. So sad that they made the Jews flee.

We felt like back in the past and we easily imagine how people lived some centuries ago. Very cleaned and well maintained streets where you walk across and contemplate the way the city way built.

We enjoyed walking through the Call. It would have been nice to have had a tour guide. We probably missed some history because we did not know it was there.

One of the best Jewish quarters I have visited, and I have been to many around the world. If you are interested in Hebrew culture, do not miss Girona´s old town. Even Noah Gordon was inspired by the beautiful city and its Jewry in some of his books. His son lives in Catalonia. Wonderful place.

The mueum is very easy to understand: all laid out in a number of languages with extremely striking artefacts from the 14th century.

Great place to spend an hour or so wandering about. We had a guided tour of the Jewish Museum beforehand so we had a better understanding of the history of this area. Yes, it is a beautiful space and there are lots of patios and restaurants - however, we were also aware of its grimmer history.

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

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.
