Here, learn about the foundation of ancient Gerunda. After discovering the origins of the city, cross the Oñar River in the direction of the "call", the Jewish quarter of medieval times. Through this area lead once the Via Augusta, the longest Roman road in Hispania.

On your walk through the old town of Gerona, also pass by the Cathedral of Santa María.
