The Jewish neighbourhood of Girona is one of the best preserved in Europe.
This district located in the heart of the city is full of ancient remains from its Roman and Medieval past. Known popularly as the "Call", this area was home to 1000 inhabitants during the Middle Ages, making it one of the most important Jewish communities in Spain's history. As you explore the pretty narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter, the hometown of Nahmanides, the Medieval Kabbalistic philosopher, you'll visit the spots where the city's 3 synagogues were located, you will find out all about the customs and traditions of the Jewish people. You'll also visit the Museum of Jewish History to learn about their way of life. Your guide will then lead you around the labyrinthine streets while explaining the history of the Expulsion of the Jews in 1492, an act that ended 600 years of coexistence. After this visit you'll have newfound knowledge of about the influence that the Jewish community left in Girona.

Ona from Girona
Kiss the lioness, Jewish Quarter and living in Girona. Ona was personable, knowledgeable and patient. A very good guide and fun person.
We went to the Jewish Museum with our family of 4 with 2 kids 10 and 8. It was a very interesting dressing for pace with loads of History. All in all a great trip!
We loved our guide Ona! They had done so much preparation to provide a great tour. My husband has a Masters degree in Jewish History and I went to Jewish schools from preschool- post high school and we were both impressed by her depth of knowledge about Judaism and the history of Jewish life in Giro and Spain.
Walking Tour of Hidden Jewish History
Ona gave us a very good walking tour of the old city. She knows the history and back alleys of Girona. We got to see many Jewish sites we would have missed on our.
Girona Jewish Heritage Tour by Girona Experience
Our guide took us on an excellent walk around the old part of Girona; it was a beautiful day and it's a beatiful area. The specifically Jewish part of the tour was, I thought, a little thin. The next time I don't think I would bother with a guide to visit the Museum of Jewish History.
