Today you’ll explore two charming towns just north of Barcelona steeped in Jewish culture. In the colorful town of Girona, winding cobblestone streets, pedestrian bridges, and colorful houses await you. Here we’ll visit the old quarter rich in Jewish heritage. Following a descriptive walking tour, you’ll continue onward to the stone village of Besalú where you’ll lunch in a tiny little restaurant nestled just below an 11th century Romanesque bridge. You couldn’t ask for a more stunning setting to savor modern Catalan fare! After lunch, tour the ruins of the Jewish quarter of Besalú, dating back to the 9th century, and the 12th century Mikvah (Jewish ritual bathhouse), considered a unique site in Europe. Your visit ends at the public gardens, where villages grow herbs for their traditional homemade liqueur, ratafia. We will then begin the drive back down to Barcelona, where your tour will come to an end.
