The mikveh, the discovery of the purifying water

Guided tour to the area of the ritual bath in the frame of the 2017 European Heritage Days

Saturday, October 7,
Museu d'Hist˛ria dels Jueus

Water, an element defining the historical heritage of Girona. A common programme between the Girona City History Museum and the Museum of Jewish History in the frame of the 2017 European Heritage Days: Cultural heritage and nature, a landscape of possibilities

Guided tour to the area of the ritual bath (15th century) conducted by SÝlvia Planas
Place: Museum of Jewish History. Mikveh area

Ritual water purification is a fundamental prescription of Judaism. At the mikveh, women submerged in living water and thus they recovered the vital harmony of body and mind. These archaeological remains preserve the aura of Jewish culture and history, which covers us and define us. We invite you to discover a historical heritage that has an insistent and eternal presence. Just like that of water.

Free activity. Catalan Language.
