1 DAY
Category:

Girona, the ancient Roman Gerunda, founded to control the Augustus Road or Via Augusta, is today a small town endowed with great beauty enhanced by local cultural initiatives, such as Temps de Flors, a springtime flower festival. We will be welcomed by the colorful view of the houses by the Onyar river and start walking across the old town. We will learn of its history, visit the former Romanesque monastery of Sant Pere Galligants and the historical Arab Baths, before entering the famous Cathedral of Saint Mary, with its Gothic single nave (the world’s widest!), cloister and museum treasure’s 11th century Tapestry of Creation. We will walk along the old city walls battlements to enjoy great views of the town and the surrounding mountains. The tour will end in the Call, one of the biggest and best preserved former Jewish Quarters in Europe and, until the 15th century, a very important center of Jewish religious and philosophical culture.
