Discover the Jewish Quarter in Girona

Shalom!

I invite you to uncover the history of the Jewish people who lived in Girona for six centuries during the Middle Ages.

Girona’s Jewish Quarter, called “Call” in Catalan, is one of the best well-preserved Jewish quarters in Spain.

Through this walking tour, we will discover where the old synagogues were located, the layout of the Call and the life of some families like Jucef Ravaya, administrator of Girona and Besalú, who served King Peter the Great and was royal treasurer.

Girona is the city where the great Cabalist and Rabbi Mosse ben Nahman called “the Ramban” was born.

Optional but highly recommended is the Jewish History Museum, which is located at the very heart of the Jewish Quarter.

The visit to this museum permits us to see the “matsevot” or gravestones with Hebrew inscriptions coming from Montjuïc cemetery. It also contains medieval documents like one quetuba and notary papers. And the last mikveh of Girona’s Jewish community, in use until 1492.
