Places - Girona, Spain
Girona has a lovely medieval section where the history of the city peaks through the architectural remnants. Take a hike up to the Cathedral and a walk on the old city’s wall to see some beautiful views. The old Jewish ghetto or “Call” is one of the best preserved in Europe. A former flourishing Jewish community in the medieval ages, it shows both the powerful impact of the Jewish people have had on Europe and the age-old, sad tale of persecution, banishment, and violence.
