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.

The Call is an atmospheric area of the former Jewish Quarter of the Old Town. The area is fascinating with narrow cobbled paths and alleyways many of which are steep and intriguing and one can be easily be transported to another era in time whilst wandering around. The city is packed with attractions and El Call is a must see... More

The Call is a maze of narrow streets and alleyways in the vicinity of the cathedral. It was the Jewish quarter until the Jews were expelled at the end of the 15th century. If you are arriving by train, head towards the river, then cross one of the old bridges and walk uphill towards the cathedral. The main streets are... More

Reminded me of the narrow streets and alleys of Toledo, but with a Catalan feel to it. The little shops, the stone walls, the history, and the legends... all make for a lovely, lovely afternoon.

We visited during the patronal festival in October so many of the small businesses were either closed for the festivities or open at different times. However, this didn't spoil the experience. The are is clean and unspoilt by tourists. The streets twist and turn and little bars and cafes seem to emerge. Strong shoes are a must... and be prepared... More

If you only see one thing in Girona, see this. A fascinating insight into the history of the Jews in Girona. The Jewish museum is also really, really interesting.

This is charming and unspoilt and quite quiet in October at any rate. How lovely to be in a historic centre not overwhelmed by tourist shops and tourists. Very relaxing place to visit.

This part of the city evokes all of the history that has made it what it is today . Gorgeous stone streets, sweet restaurants and shops, and a very moving Jewish museum.
