While the Jewish museum in Girona has fewer bells and whistles than other Jewish museums in southern Europe, compared to the others I have visited, this one is unique in that it is more of an archaeological museum. When the Jewish community in Gerona was decimated in 1492, all the Jewish homes were annexed by the community, all the synagogues... More

While none of the Synagogues remain, the winding cobblestone labyrinth which is the Jewish Quarter is an amazing place to spend an hour or four. There are many stories linked to it's streets. Must see.

Nice and beautiful old steps to take pictures and its steep. You will love the stairs since they are fun to walk and take pictures.

After visiting the Cathedral of Girona we visited the Old Jewish Quarter. Wandering on old and narrow cobbled streets is like you turn back in time . It is a bit steep going up and down but take it easy and enjoy a place full of character and history. Is it full with restaurants and little bars. Highly recommended

Exploring the museum in the heart of the Jewish quarter was interesting. Seeing the artifacts from the 1400's in the place where the old Jewish quarter existed had more impact then just observing them in a museum in the US.

A hilly area of cobbled streets, which can be difficult to negotiate. However, it is worth some effort, as it full of character. The narrow lanes and alleys take you through history, through the large ancient city walls.

We had read many things about this and were disappointed. We've visited other Jewish centers/synagogues in Spain that were better (particularly in Barcelona and the small one in Besalu). The location is pleasing, as is the whole city of Girona.

The Call is the historic Jewish quarter of Girona, very active from the middle ages through the 15th century. In 1492 Spain forced the conversion or exile of the Sephardic Jews who had lived there for many centures. Modern Girona celebrates the many years of Jewish culture with a lovely museum and a walk around the historic Jewish quarter in... More

It is much more than a simple museum. It is also the actual venue of the old jewish section of girona. The visit includes the excavations done in the area, including the mikve. Also at this place there is a research team, working in the heritage of the jewish culture at Girona. Fantastic place to be visited!
