Lovely buildings and clean cobble streets with lots of steps. There are quite a few nice little shops on the street, worth venturing in. It's so quiet and such a difference from the bustling streets near the river and on the other side. The quarter itself is quite small and only took us less than 30 minutes to explore. We... More

The Jewish quarter including the Jewish museum was one of the main reasons for our visit. Although the museum and the Jewish quarters are now a small part of the city there were some excellent finds. First, just seeing the remnants of the Jewish people in any part of Spain is interesting given the inquisition and the awful treatments towards... More

The streets are some of the narrowest I have ever seen . Excellent for photos.Especially in the Jewish district. Lovely little shops on both sides.

This is a small part of the city with some very interesting buildings to see. The ambience of walking through the little lanes is great. Lots of photo opportunities for those that like to take photos.

We visited on a Sunday and entry to the museum is free. There are English versions of the description of the artefacts on display and they provided us with a better understanding about how the Jewish community lived in those days.

A lovely part of Spain and Girona. Quiet narrow streets and avenues. Tall pastel coloured houses and shops either side, narrowing into the distance. Lots of surprises round each corner (a scene from Game of thrones surprised us!) Plenty of nice shops and restaurants and good bars. The history is very interesting too, with lots of museums and historical attractions.... More

All girona has an special flair and beautiful atmosphere. No wonder they used it as a set to record Game of Thrones.

The taxi driver dropped us here as he was lost! Very interesting historic area with a few shops and cafes. Pedestrians only as uneven pavements so not suitable for disabled or wheelchairs.

Really interesting walk around Girona's Jewish quarter. Not a huge bit of the town but its definitely packed full of sights and culture. A few too many shops for my liking (aren't there always) and it's not the best place for those with limited mobility but there are plenty of sights to see and a couple of museums to go... More

The Jewish history in this city goes back many centuries and hasn't always been a good one. But the culture remains and any visitor to Girona should stroll along the lanes and streets of this small neighbourhood; you won't be disappointed.
