Girona Jewish Quarter Tours

Girona, one of Catalonia’s most atmospheric towns, is also home to one of the world’s best-preserved Jewish quarters, known as the Call. This neighborhood dates back to the 12th century when Girona was home to a thriving Jewish community. Its maze of medieval streets and narrow back alleys hasn’t changed much in the centuries since.
 
The Basics
Girona is one of the most convenient and popular day trips from Barcelona, with a bulk of the town’s attractions situated in or near the Jewish Quarter. A typical tour might include sights, such as the impressive hilltop Cathedral of Santa Maria and the nearby Arab baths, while Jewish history tours often include a stop at the Museum of Jewish History.
 
In recent years, the Jewish Quarter was used as a filming location for Game of Thrones, and TV-themed walking tours take visitors to key filming sites.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Jewish Quarter is a must-see for history buffs and first-time visitors to Girona.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces; cobbled streets are still the norm.
  • Keep in mind that many shops and restaurants in the Call close during the afternoon hours, so plan accordingly.
  • Day trips from Barcelona can last anywhere from six to 13 hours, depending on the activities chosen.
 
How to Get There
The Jewish Quarter is located in the old part of the city, around Carrer de la Força and within easy walking distance of the Girona train station.
 
When to Get There
With a mild climate, there’s no real bad time to visit Girona and its Jewish Quarter, though it can be rather busy during the month of August. For the best balance of good weather and sparser crowds, plan to visit during the spring or fall shoulder seasons. The old city hosts a wildly popular flower festival in mid-May.
 
Museum of Jewish History
The collection at the Museum of Jewish History in Girona recounts the history of Catalonia’s Jewish communities throughout the medieval period. Eleven themed galleries lead visitors through the collection, covering topics such as family life, Jewish culture, synagogues, and the Inquisition.
