Girona Experience: a Game of Thrones City with one of the best preserved Jewish Quarters of Europe

In this seven hour trip, you will travel to Girona by high-speed train and discover el Call, one of the largest Jewish quarters in all of Europe, and many of the most emblematic places in this city’s downtown area.

  • Girona is an amazingly beautiful city that holds an impressive historical legacy. Located in the north of Catalonia, possesses a unique and special atmosphere and hides thousands of magical nooks.

    We will start off by meeting you at your hotel and heading to the Sants train station (Barcelona(, where we will take an AVE (High Speed Train) train that takes just 38 minutes to get to Girona, also known as “the city of four rivers”.

    Once there, we will visit Girona’s most emblematic places, like the Call, one of the best preserved and most important Jewish quarters in Europe, the Cathedral, one of the biggest gothic cathedrals worldwide, the Força Vella, an impressive first-century Roman fortress, the basilica of Sant Feliu, Sant Pere de Galligans and Sant Nicolau or the Plaza Independencia among others.

    The Jewish Quarter called Call consists of a labyrinth of narrow streets and patios that have maintained their medieval atmosphere. It is one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in the world and clear evidence of the importance of the Jewish culture in Girona.

    Wondering why the Game of Thrones chose Girona to film a season? Your guide will show you all the reasons.

    We will stop to have something to drink and an appetiser to replenish ourselves before returning to Barcelona with the AVE train which will take us back to Sants station.
