The Jewish Quarter

The Jewish ghetto – El Call – is one of the best preserved in Europe and is a major tourist attraction. Take a walk around the old quarter with alleyways of stairs bordering Carrer de la Força. The roots of the old Jewish community can be explored at the Museum of the History of the Jews, built on the site of a 15th-century synagogue. Hot tip: Some scenes of season six of Games of Thrones were filmed here.

Do & See

Girona is above all a city to be walked. The medieval beauty of the Old Quarter, with its winding cobblestone alleys, pleasant plazas and the unique facades hanging over the River Onyar, is compact enough to explore in depth on foot, and beautiful enough to keep you wandering in circles for days. But don't miss the chance to visit some of the wonderful museums and local attractions, including skiing, ancient monasteries and the unmissable Costa Brava.
