This lovely private Barcelona day trip from Barcelona, only an hour away, features the small medieval town of Girona. The town has managed to preserve much of the historic architecture and character its medieval quarter, which you will explore with your private guide.
You will walk along Girona’s ancient fortifications, now converted into pleasant gardens among medieval ramparts, towers and turrets, and climb its steep, winding cobblestone streets lined with castle-looking churches and other distinctive buildings.
You will also explore the medieval Jewish Quarter or Call, stopping to visit the Bonastruc ça Porta Centre. This center organizes temporary exhibitions and other Jewish heritage cultural activities, and houses the Nahmamides Institute for Jewish Studies and the Museum of the History of the Jews.
Finally, your day trip from Barcelona takes you to Girona Cathedral, an excellent example of Catalan Gothic architecture. The grounds were previously home to an ancient cathedral that was later used by the Moors as a mosque. You can walk the 86 steps to the cathedral’s entrance for an optional interior visit. The cathedral also includes a small museum, whose main attraction is the Tapestry of Creation, a 11th or 12th century textile considered one of the finest examples of Romanesque tapestry.
