Guided tour around Girona where you will discover its Jewish history and the rest of the main sites of the city.


You will learn the history of the Catalan Jews that lived in Girona from 898 until 1492. The Girona Jewish quarter is a labyrinth of little streets and old courtyards, one of the most well-preserved in Europe from the medieval period.

If you have been a few days in Barcelona and you are tired of the tourist crowds, the ancient city of Girona is the perfect place to visit to escape the bustle of Barcelona. Girona is only 36 minutes taking the speed train and by car it is only 100 km.

Tour is very flexible if there is something that you want to change during the tour is also possible.

A Recent Review of this tour

Miquel was an amazing guide. He was knowledgeable and passionate about Girona. We are a family of 6 and he was able to engage all of us! We were visiting Girona for it's history and beauty, but also for the Game of Thrones tour. Miquel offered fascinating historical facts as well as extensive knowledge of GOT. We explored 2 different worlds with the BEST Girona guide!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
