Summary

The first synagogue documented in Girona, presumably in the late 10th century, is situated at the angle formed by the cathedral and the Episcopal Palace where the first Jewish community was settled. The palace has now given way to a splendid museum which displays one of the best collections of Romanesque and Gothic art in Catalonia, enriched with works by major artists until the 20th century. Bisbe Cartanyà street crosses a passageway to the Episcopal Palace and it enters the upper city alongside the wall.
