You must visit the Jewish Quarter or Call is one of the city’s most emblematic areas. Located within the Força Vella, it consists of a labyrinth of narrow streets and patios that have maintained their medieval atmosphere. It is one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in the world and clear evidence of the importance of the Jewish culture in Girona.
