Jewish Girona

Girona's Jewish quarter, named Call, is qualified as the best preserved in Spain. It was formed around Força Street, near the Cathedral. This quarter, of narrow streets and mysterious corners, reached a population of 800 people in its best moment. 

In this quarter lived well-known scholars of Jewish law, philosophers and cabalist. The cabalist's circle of Girona had outstanding mystic interpreters of the Ancient Testament. Noteworthy is the multifaceted Rabbi Mosse Ben Nahman author of an important work in medieval times.

The Jewish History Museum offers a panoramic view of Jewish ‘history, culture and religion.
