Located between the Iberian Peninsula and France, Girona is an historical fortress city with a wealth of cultural heritage. Despite its small size, it is home to some of the best architectural and artistic treasures in the region. The city has been around for hundreds of years and its old fortress walls still encircle the city.

Girona's Old City is built on a hill. It has a number of squares that act as hangouts for locals and tourists. The most famous square is the Independence Square. It features a monument honoring those who defended the city in 1809. The city is also home to many cafes, shops, and restaurants.

Known as El Call in Spanish, the Jewish quarter of Girona is one of the oldest, most well-preserved in Europe. The quarter is located in the heart of the Old City, also known as the Forca Vella. The Jewish Quarter has been a major influence on Girona's architecture, culture, and gastronomy.

The Jewish Quarter was home to three synagogues and a Jewish community of about 1,000 people during the Middle Ages. The community owned properties in Mercadal, al Mercadell, and the Ballesteries street. The Jewish community also had a number of mills in the Mercadal area. In 1207, the community had an extension of virgin land in the northern part of the city.

In the 14th and 15th century, the Jewish community in Girona was forced to convert to Catholicism. They were forbidden to live outside the Jewish neighborhood. The monarchs also imposed high taxes on them.

Today, the Jewish Quarter is one of Girona's most visited areas. Visitors can enjoy the architecture of the area, which is a mix of medieval buildings and modern structures.

The area is full of narrow stone alleyways and courtyards. Many of these alleyways are lined with charming stone stairs.
