This is the old Jewish Quarter of Girona, before the "Catholics" King and Queen started to clean their kingdom from Jewish people. You can visit the old houses that are carefully maintained. A museum can learn you about all the work Jewish's were doing, working with the others inhabitants of the city. Until XIX century Jewish people were pursued in... More

Brilliant. Excellent walks through ancient streets, many of which served as location for the most recent Game of Thrones series. Well worth a stroll

It's incredible part of the old city to walk around. We went to the Jewish museum as well. It really gives you the picture of what the city must of looked like in the 13th & 14th century. It's amazing to visualize, but it also has a sad ending. The history aspect of this area really blew me away, and... More

Lovely buildings and clean cobble streets with lots of steps. There are quite a few nice little shops on the street, worth venturing in. It's so quiet and such a difference from the bustling streets near the river and on the other side. The quarter itself is quite small and only took us less than 30 minutes to explore. We... More

The Jewish quarter including the Jewish museum was one of the main reasons for our visit. Although the museum and the Jewish quarters are now a small part of the city there were some excellent finds. First, just seeing the remnants of the Jewish people in any part of Spain is interesting given the inquisition and the awful treatments towards... More

The streets are some of the narrowest I have ever seen . Excellent for photos.Especially in the Jewish district. Lovely little shops on both sides.

This is a small part of the city with some very interesting buildings to see. The ambience of walking through the little lanes is great. Lots of photo opportunities for those that like to take photos.

We visited on a Sunday and entry to the museum is free. There are English versions of the description of the artefacts on display and they provided us with a better understanding about how the Jewish community lived in those days.

A lovely part of Spain and Girona. Quiet narrow streets and avenues. Tall pastel coloured houses and shops either side, narrowing into the distance. Lots of surprises round each corner (a scene from Game of thrones surprised us!) Plenty of nice shops and restaurants and good bars. The history is very interesting too, with lots of museums and historical attractions.... More
