Girona Història i Llegendes

Girona, la Ciutat dels 4 Rius, amb a prop dels 100.000 habitants, és una ciutat de dimensions humanes amb l'oferta de les grans ciutats, però sense les multituds que aquestes comporten. La seva posició geogràfica la fa adequada per a la visita turística en qualsevol època de l'any. Prop de la gran urbs de Barcelona, de la que dista 100 km, prop també de la frontera francesa, de la Costa Brava i dels Pirineus, ben comunicada per carretera, ferrocarril i amb l'aeroport situat a 16 km del centre, propicia gaudir de la ciutat a totes les estacions.

En el recorregut que us proposem podreu conèixer tant la seva història com les llegendes de la ciutat.

We will take you on a journey through time, from the foundation of the city, along the Via Augusta and the Walls, we will reach the Roman and Carolingian eras to Medieval Girona, we will enjoy the great splendor of the city in those years, reflected in the exquisite Romanesque monasteries, the Arab Baths, the great Gothic Palaces and above all the Cathedral.

In the historic center of the city, around the Cathedral, we will find the important Jewish trace that still remains in Girona. The aljama (Jewish community) was one of the most important in Spain and the center of Kabbalah. The Jewish quarter "El Call" extends through a maze of porticoed alleys and cobbled streets that have been preserved intact since 1492, the year of the expulsion of the Jews to the peninsula.

The Jewish presence in the city dates back to the 9th century and they managed to make their community important thanks to the merchants, doctors, notaries... who made it up and such notorious characters as Moses Ben Nahman (great master of the Kabbalah, also known by Nahmanides, Ramabán or Bonastruc ça Porta).

The Jewish community came to be a tenth of the city's population.

Going down Carrer de la Força we will leave the Call behind, pass by the Modernist style house where Rafael Masó was born and arrive at the Rambla to see the bridges over the Onyar River. We will explain the most important ones, Pont de Pedra, Pont Eiffel and Pont de la Princessa, ending the visit here.
