Located within the Forca Vella (a first century BC acropolis), the Jewish Quarter or Call is one of Girona’s most symbolic areas. A labyrinth of narrow streets and patios form the neighbourhood. An evidence of the importance of the Jewish culture in Girona, the area has still maintained its medieval atmosphere and is one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in the world.

Wasn't really interesting or worth the money I paid. Often times there was no translation to English and the AC wasn't working. I don't think that this is the right way to learn about the interesting past of the Jewish community in Spain.
Had a lovely experience, and joined group with a tour guide. Unfortunately didn't catch the name of the lady who took us around, but she was so lovely and informative. A beautiful building, finished off with a walk around the city learning about its Jewish history. Would highly recommend. Also reasonably priced and worth it!
interesting experience. this two Mannequins from the museum looks like characters from the book (or series) "The Handmaid's Tale" no? Offred and Selina
Very nice Jewish Museum about the life of Jews in Catalonia. I appreciated the insights into their daily and community life.
A recent local effort to gather evidence of a large and prominent Jewish settlement in medieval Spain, destroyed by the purge order by Queen Isabella. The key artifacts are a fatalistic parchment, candelabra and tomb stones with Jewish inscription.
