- Explore the Jewish Quarter
- Walk along a Roman Wall
- Check out Arab Baths from the 12th-Century
- See Game of Thrones filming locations
Hosting one of the world’s best-preserved Jewish quarters, Girona is home to the fascinating Museum of Jewish History. Explore the Jewish Quarter and learn about the city’s complex history and its role during the Papal Inquisition.
Head to the Cathedral of Girona and see the Tapestry of Creation which dates back to the 11th-century. Conveniently located next to the cathedral are the Arab Baths, constructed by the Romans in the 12th-century. Fans of Game of Thrones will recognize them as where Arya Stark hid from the Waif. In fact, many parts of Girona have been used as settings for Games of Thrones scenes.
Check out the confluence of four rivers, the Galligants, Güell, Onyar, and Ter, which occurs in Girona. This fortunate location helped Girona become a major trading town, a value that led to it transitioning from one ruler to another throughout history.
Visit Girona and relax in its charming cafes, browse its quaint boutiques, walk along its cobblestone streets, and cross the Eiffel Bridge before heading back to Barcelona.
