This guided excursion is designed to take you back in time, as we explore one of the most historically rich cities in Spain. From Roses we’ll journey south to Girona. We’ll begin in the area of El Call, the Jewish Quarter, where the labyrinth of narrow streets and courtyards are remarkably well-preserved. From there, we’ll move on to the Medieval walls of the city and see the remains of the Torre Gironella. This tower is the tallest point of the city wall and, according to Greek mythology, was built by a giant. We’ll also pass by the Catalonian Romanesque Monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants, which was declared a national monument in 1931. The tour will wrap up at the Arab Baths, which in actual fact aren’t Arab at all. They were built by Christians in a Romanesque style, and their Arab influences reflect a period in Spanish history where rule switched from Roman to North African and back again. You’ll then have some free time to explore the city under your own steam.
