Girona Jueva & Besalú

If you are coming to visit Girona from Barcelona don’t miss the opportunity to explore the old medieval village of Besalú with its famous medieval bridge and it’s old Jewish quarter and have lunch enjoying the views of the Banyoles lake.

 

The traces of Besalú’s Jewish past are still visible. In the doors of some houses you still can see the hole where the old Catalan Jewish families placed the mezuzahs. In the Call (the Jewish quarter) you will see the remains of an old Synagogue and a miqveh discovered by chance in 1964, the miqveh have been dated back to the 12th century and are believed to be some of the oldest Jewish baths still standing in Europe.

 

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 scape the bustle of Barcelona. Girona is only 36 minutes taking the speed train and by car it is only 100 km.
