A tour of Girona can also be combined with visiting the village of Besalu for those of you who love medieval villages and/or are interested in exploring the region’s Jewish heritage. Besalú, located on the Fluvià river, was the capital of the county of Besalú in the Middle Ages, and still keeps the remains of ramparts, several medieval churches, and a very handsome Romanesque bridge. Additionally, its medieval mikve is one of the very few of its kind kept in Europe from that period.
If you are interested in Jewish history, and have booked a Barcelona city tour with us, we’ll happily include Barcelona’s Jewish Quarter and the Old Synagogue into the itinerary. We can also add more time to the Girona and Besalu tour and add the Jewish Quarter in Barcelona. Just ask us about your different choices when you contact us. There are traces of Jewish heritage in other towns, such as Tarragona, but not as significant as those in Girona, Besalu, and Barcelona.
