The origins. Six hundred years of history

The visit to the Museum begins with an explanation of the origins of Girona's Jewish community. Here we shall journey with the Jewish People from ancient times onwards, accompanying them in their trials. Taking as starting point the persecution at the time of the Roman Empire, the Jewish People was scattered throughout the Mediterranean, in a wandering journey without end. The first families settled in the city as early as the 9th century, forming a community with its own life and identity.
