Follow in the footsteps of one of Spain's most important historic communities on this tour through Girona's Jewish Quarter. Discover the fascinating mix of Roman, Medieval and Jewish heritage drawn together from different periods in history.

Jewish Quarter Tour

Meet at 10 am in Plaça de Sant Feliu square to begin your guided tour through the Jewish neighbourhood of Girona, one of the best preserved in Europe. This district, whose original appearance has been well preserved, is located in the heart of the city and is full of ancient remains from its Roman and Medieval past. Known popularly as the "Call", this area was home to one thousand 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 Nachmanides, the Medieval Kabbalistic philosopher, physician and Sephardic Rabbi, you'll visit the spots where the city's three synagogues were located.

During the guided tour you will find out all about the customs and traditions of the Jewish people who lived here, as well as the tools that they used, and the design of their houses. 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 three hours exploring the "Call", your tour will come to an end, and you'll have newfound knowledge of the profound influence that the Jewish community left in Girona.
