private girona besalu tour

See the only two medieval mikhva in Catalonia

Are you looking for a Jewish Heritage tour near Barcelona? Or would you rather spend a day in the countryside away from the tourist crowds? Are you fascinated by the Middle Ages? Game of Thrones anyone?

The city of Girona has kept its magical medieval atmosphere in a beautiful way (enough to be chosen to be Braavos in season 6 of Game of Thrones), and it’s famous for its Jewish Quarter. And Besalú is pretty close, with its charming lay out along a river, its imposing bridge and one of the few medieval mikvah kept in Spain.

Leave all the logistics in our hands and come exploring Girona and Besalú with us.

TAILOR THIS TOUR TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

This tour is perfect for people able to walk, with a strong interest in the local Jewish Heritage, or that just want to spend a lovely day out of town away from the tourist crowds and see the countryside.

If you are traveling with kids, this tour is child-friendly as we can focus the tour on the exploration of the sites, instead of the academic part.

If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, please note that the visit of Girona involves sections of stairs and uphill cobblestone streets. There are cobblestone streets in Besalú as well. We recommend you book a 6-hour Girona tour and ask your guide to take you on the little tourist train instead of walking you around.

If you are also interested in the Jewish Section of Barcelona, add one extra hour to your tour to be able to visit it, or check out our Barcelona Jewish Tour.

We had a wonderful day with Pepus, our tour guide from ForeverBarcelona. We were met at the port as we exited our shop in Barcelona and taken by a very nice and comfortable van to our tour in Girona and Besalú. Pepus was an excellent guide who proved to be very knowledgeable on the matter of Jewish History and the entire area of Catalonia. He took us to very interesting places and provided together with our van driver, excellent servcie and ag reat experience. A beautiful day we will never forget.
