Expert review of Centre Bonastruc ça Porta (Jewish Museum) & Jewish Quarter
Within Girona's Old Town or Barri Vell as they call it in Catalan is El Call – the best preserved Jewish Quarter in Western Europe. The Call is full of winding, narrow lanes and alleyways and, like several of Spain’s old Jewish quarters, there’s a slightly poignant, almost haunted air about it but that doesn’t mean it’s downbeat. On the contrary, it’s full of hip little shops, bars and eateries. The Jewish Museum (the Centre Bonastruc ça Porta), has a lovely Andaluz-style central patio and a fascinating permanent exhibition detailing the history and life of the community alongside some beautiful artefacts in bronze and silver. There are also good temporary exhibitions.
For the Jewish Museum, as follows: Standard individual admission fee: 2 euros.
Reduced admission fee: 1.50 euros.
Admission is free to the Museum on the first Sunday of every month.
