Full description
Start your full day trip from Barcelona on a comfortable bus with a guide on board. Set off to visit one of the most beautiful cities in Catalonia: Girona. This city has a medieval area with one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in Europe. It has  also been the filming location for some scenes in the 6th season of HBO's hit series Game of Thrones. 

Learn about the origins of the city of Girona in the Roman period, when the settlement was known as Gerunda, and was located in the Via Augusta - a history still preserved in the city walls. Discover how Girona played an important role during the Carolingian period because it was part of the area known as Marca Hispanica, a military buffer zone that worked as a defensive barrier between Al-Andalus and the Carolingian Empire. Find out why during the 13th-century, the Jewish community of Girona was at its peak, and the reason why this city has such an important Jewish quarter.

When you arrive in Girona, enjoy a 2-hour guided walking tour through the city center. Visit almost all the highlights of the old city (entrance fees to monuments are not included), then spend 1-hour of free time exploring at your own pace. See how some parts of the old city of Girona have been chosen as locations for the Game of Thrones 6th season. In the narrow streets of the Jewish quarter, the Arabic Baths and the back of the Cathedral were the filming locations for some scenes recreating Braavos with Arya as the main character. The Cathedral stairs were transformed into the Great Sept of Baelor in King’s Landing and important scenes such as Queen Margaery's shame walk and the entrance of Jaime Lannister on his horse were shot here.

Finally, in the last chapter of the season, see how the church of the monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants is transformed into the Citadel Library, where Samwell Tarly goes to become a Maestre.
