The Museu d'Història dels Jueus in Girona explains the history of Catalonia's Jewish communities
Girona once housed one of the most important Jewish communities in the Western world, and, still today, it contains one of Europe's most important Jewish neighbourhoods ('call' in Catalan). The Jewish History Museum, located in the Bonastruc ça Porta centre, seeks to explain the history of Catalonia's Jewish communities. The Museum has 11 different rooms that take visitors on a tour of the daily lives, culture and history of Jewish communities around the region and in Girona itself during the medieval period. The building, coincidentally, is situated in the space in the Call that was occupied by the synagogue and its outbuildings in the 15th century.
