Girona: Jewish Heritage Guided City Tour and Museum Visit

1. Girona: Jewish Heritage Guided City Tour and Museum Visit

Meeting at 10 AM in Plaça de Sant Feliu, begin your guided tour through the Jewish neighborhood of Girona, one of the best-preserved in Europe. This district is located in the heart of the city and is full of ancient remains from its Roman and Medieval past. Known locally as “the Call”, this area was home to 1,000 inhabitants during the Middle Ages, making it one of the most important Jewish communities in Spain's history. As you explore the narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter — hometown of Nahmanides, the Medieval Kabbalistic philosopher, physician and Sephardic rabbi — you'll visit the spots where the city's 3 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 3 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.

Both guides in Girona as well as Figueres were very knowledgeable, interesting and very good communicators. The instructions were always crisis & clear. They ensured that every one knew their way back to the bus unambiguously & shared personal ohone number if anyone needed help. The head phones provided had good range & excellent voice clarity. My family thoroughly enjoyed the trip & learnt lots of interesting history from these two guides. Kamal Sodhi, India

girona is a small but an amazing town. ıt was very good to walk along side the town. In addition, I strongly recommend the Salvador Dali's museum. It was a fantastic tour and our guide ALEX was amazing. He almost told us every detail of the museum and he has a strong information on the museum and Salvador Dali. We discussed the Dali's illustrations with the participants and our guide Alex. He made the tour very enjoyable. You have to see this museum guys!
