Explore the Jewish Quarter, which has been incredibly well preserved, and learn about the Kabbalah that existed here. This trip includes round-trip transport from your hotel and personalized attention from your private guide.
Meet your guide and private driver at your hotel in Barcelona. Head first to the town of Figueres to visit the fantastic Salvador Dalí Museum. The guide will obtain tickets in advance, allowing you to skip the lines and enter directly for a private excursion into the museum that Dalí created himself. Listen as the guide tells you more about Dalí's life, his fascinating art, and the genre of surrealism, of which Dalí was the master. Some of his works were even created using squid ink and other unusual techniques, which makes them even stranger.
Next, travel to Girona, a city rich in both Roman and medieval history. Discover the medieval fortifications, originally built in Roman times and completely rebuilt in the XNUMXth century. You will then visit the Jewish quarter, which flourished in the XNUMXth century and where one of the most important kabbalistic schools in Europe was founded.
Follow the guide as he or she tells you more about Girona's art, history and traditions. Enjoy sweeping views of the city from the fortified walls and explore the town before getting back in your car. Your guide will drop you off at your hotel in Barcelona at the end of the day.
