Centre Bonastruc ça Porta

Centre Bonastruc ça Porta Review

Housed in a former synagogue and dedicated to the preservation of Girona's Jewish heritage, this center organizes conferences, exhibitions, and seminars. The Museu de Història dels Jueus (Museum of Jewish History) contains 21 stone tablets, one of the finest collections in the world of medieval Jewish funerary slabs. These came from the old Jewish cemetery of Montjuïc, revealed when the railroad between Barcelona and France was laid out in the 19th century. Its exact location, about 1.5 km (1 mile) north of Girona on the road to La Bisbal and known as La Tribana, is being excavated. The center also holds the Institut d'Estudis Nahmànides, with an extensive library of Judaica.
