Girona Jewish Quarter is Very Interesting

The Jewish Quarter is interesting. Girona was a major study center for kabbalah prior to 1492. Very vibrant Jewish community until then

A fascinating and atmospheric area to visit. The narrow streets and small boutiques are very interesting. It is worth climbing the 86 steps up to the cathedral for the view from the top. However, you have to pay to go into the cathedral itself which we think is wrong.

Well worth visiting, the museum was closed and opening hours are not very long, if you visit Girona plan visit and times before, best to snack during day, as service is very slow, beautiful part and the views from the city walls are fab
