    Priestly exposition, where you will learn about the history of the Jewish communities in Catalonia and the Kingdom of Aragon, which covers the period from the 9th to the 15th centuries. Among the artifacts presented in the museum, the collection of medieval Jewish tombstones is of particular interest.

    In the museum you can get acquainted with the history of theater and cinema. Here there are such rare exhibits as a camera obscura; the first film projector of the Lumiere brothers, which appeared in the 19th century; as well as optical illusions created with the help of mirrors and the play of light.

    We visited on a Tuesday morning and there was hardly anyone there. It is beautifully curated and has some wonderful art and artefacts, including the original panels from the Basilica of St. Feliu. We spent around 45 minutes on the first floor, and the same on the remaining floors (I think there are five levels from memory). The last floor was a temporary exhibition space. A lift in the courtyard takes you up to reception, and beyond. Well worth a visit if you are visiting the cathedral, as it’s very close. We bought a combined ticket for the Art Museum, Cathedral and Saint Feliu online, which we picked up at the Art Museum and easily managed all three in one day. The city has also introduced a discount card for the main sights, so it’s worth investigating that too if you plan to visit lots of museums.

    Casa Masó is the creation of Rafael Masó, it is one of his works of architecture and the only one open to the public on the river in Girona. The house retains Nosentist-era furniture and finishes and offers unparalleled views of the city.

    They have some true treasures in there, plus you can wander the church and cloister. Specially the Iberian, pre-Roman remains, but also some greek pieces were espectacular.

    This is an extremely peculiar museum. For English speaking tourists it's in two parts, unintentionally or not. Half of it is translated into English so you know what the myriad of exhibits are. The rest isn't. This is a shame as there are some interesting exhibits, including children's drawings from the civil war. Still worth a visit with basic language knowledge, Google Translate and some patience. Disappointingly the most impressive Roman mosaic was closed off despite good English language commentary.

    This museum is from the cathedral’s treasury collection. It is included with the price of admission to the attached cathedral. There are three rooms - the most noteworthy pieces are described in the audio guide which is provided upon admission to the cathedral. Be sure to head to the last room where the beautifully massive Tapestry of the Creation is on display.

    This is a superb city to wander through. A true step back in time.
    The buildings are well preserved as are all the alleys. Great shopping if you are in the mood.

    While the staff are quite snobbish, it's worth visiting for an art experience. Like most galleries it represents both decent and bad artists.

    This palace was built in the traditions of medieval architecture. Although in my opinion, the facade of the building is more than modest. But since it is located opposite the cathedral, the place is one of the most visited. This palace belonged to an aristocratic family and is now a center of contemporary art.

    At the old hospital of Santa Caterina (dates back from 1677) , you will find one of the oldest pharmacy in Catalonia, from the end of the XVII century. Very good restoration. It's the Catalan government's building nowadays in Girona.
