Really interesting walk around Girona's Jewish quarter. Not a huge bit of the town but its definitely packed full of sights and culture. A few too many shops for my liking (aren't there always) and it's not the best place for those with limited mobility but there are plenty of sights to see and a couple of museums to go... More

The Jewish history in this city goes back many centuries and hasn't always been a good one. But the culture remains and any visitor to Girona should stroll along the lanes and streets of this small neighbourhood; you won't be disappointed.

Girona's medieval architecture is outstanding. Jewish quarter isn't big but definitely worth attention - little narrow streets, many steps, museum, gift shops.

The beauty in this walk is not in any one place but in the narrow street and walks the steps and the history. Yes there are a lot of shops but look beyond that and enjoy the architecture.

The historic buildings are beautiful, with mysterious narrow stairways turning this way and that, inviting you to explore. We found out when we got there recent episodes of Game of Thrones were filmed there (Anya Stark character) and we could definitely see it!

This is one of the oldest Jewish quarters in the world. Aside from walking the beautiful ancient streets of Girona, we visited the Jewish museum where we interesting artifacts and other remains of Jewish history are to be found. The entrance is 4 Euros and visiting won't eat up much of your day. Visit if you have interest in Jewish... More

The Jewish quarter has good small shops and plenty of choice for eating and drinking. The buildings are old with quaint passageways to explore and an abundance of photo opportunities.

Even if it,s part of the cultural side from the city there is few things that make you feel in a different ambiance, a little bit forced...

Worth to visit. Part of the old city with a lot of interesting buildings. One never expect to see such an interesting quarter in a catalan city. Some historical knowledge was required to appreciate this part of the town.

We stayed in an apartment on the Ramblas in the Jewish Quarter. Very atmospheric and colourful. We found some excellent places to eat (the best "Le Bistro" on some old steps - when anyone arrived a member of staff rushed out with table and chairs and put them anywhere on the steps where there was space.) Lovely, cheap wine. Lots... More
