A scenic one-hour panoramic drive west from Palamos brings you to the beautiful town of Girona, known as the Immortal City. Girona is rich in historic treasures and is one of the most interesting monumental cities in Spain.
You'll stop at the El Call area. This is one of the best-preserved Jewish Quarters in Europe -- continuously inhabited for almost seven centuries. At the very heart of the Jewish Quarter are the Arab Baths with their beautiful arches. In spite of the name, the architecture of the baths is western Romanesque style.
Visit the Bonastruch Ca Porta Museum on the site of the old synagogue. View from a distance the medieval walls of the city, and the ruins of the Gironella Tower, destroyed by Napoleon during his retreat in 1814. Enjoy some free time to get close to the walls or to purchase a snack (at your own expense).
Don't miss viewing the outside of the great Catalonian Romanesque Monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants before you re-board the coach and return to the ship in Palamos.
Please note: Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
