A scenic one-hour drive southwest from Rosas 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.
Visit the Bonastruch Ca Porta Museum on the site of the old synagogue, as well as the medieval walls of the city and the remains of the Gironella Tower, destroyed by Napoleon during his retreat in 1814.
First, 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 construction of the baths is western Romanesque style. The baths' style imitates old Muslim bathhouses with an apoditerium for changing, a frigidarium for cold baths, a tepidarium offering warm water, and a caldarium for hot baths.
View the outside of the great Catalonian Romanesque Monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants.
If the schedule allows, you will enjoy some free time strolling in the center of the city. There are many charming cafés and restaurants to be found along the Rambla of Girona.
Your tour will conclude with the return drive to the ship in Rosas.
