Enjoy the nice patios and alleyways of the Jewish Quarter at the same time you discover the history of medieval Jews.
The Girona’s Jewish Quarter is one of the best well-preserved Jewish quarters in Spain.
A nice stroll up and down through the cobbled streets of the Jewish Quarter will bring us to know the area where the Jewish people lived for 6 centuries. We will know where the old synagogues were located and the history of this community in Girona.
Girona is the city where the great Cabalist and Rabbai Nahmanides called “the Ramban” was born.
Let’s know the history of the Jewish people who lived in Girona five centuries ago.
Optional but recommended is: the Jewish History Museum, located at the very heart of the Jewish Quarter.
Inside the museum we can see: the Mikveh. This is the last mikveh of the Girona’s Jewish community, in use until 1492. This purification bath was founded recently, in 2014.
The visit to this museum permits us to see the “matsevot” or gravestones with Hebrew inscriptions founded on Montjuïc cemetery. It also contains medieval documents like one quetuba and notary papers.
