Full day excursion from Barcelona in a comfortable bus and guide on board that offers you the possibility to visit two cities in the north of Barcelona: Girona, medieval city with one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in Europe; and Figueres, with its unique Dalí Theatre- Museum.
First of all we will visit the beautiful city of Girona. We find the origins of Girona in the roman period, when the settlement was known as Gerunda, and was located in the Via Augusta. From that time we only preserve part of the city walls. Girona played an important role during the Carolingian period, because it was part of the area known as Marca Hispanica, which was a military buffer zone that worked as a defensive barrier between Al-Andalus and the Carolingian Empire. During the XIII century the Jewish community of Girona was at its peak, that is the reason why this city has such an important Jewish quarter.
When we arrive to Girona we will take you on a guided tour in the city center. During this walking tour you will see the main highlights of the ancient city (the entrance fee of the monuments is not included). When the guided tour ends, you will be given free time to visit the city by yourself.
