Its construction was first started in the 11th century in Romanesque style, and later continued in the 13th century in Gothic style. Of the original Romanesque edifice only the 12th century cloister and the bell tower remain. Outside has a Baroque façade and 2 bell Towers.
One hour lunch break in a typical restaurant enjoying the local gastronomy.
*The Jewish Heritage: Although most traces of Girona’s rich Jewish history were wiped out when the Jews were expelled from Spain (see Spanish expulsion), a few remain. On Carrer de Sant Llorenç, a rectangular indentation that once held a mezuzah can be seen on the doorway of an old building. Farther along is the Centre Bonastruc ça Porta and the Catalan Jewish Museum. The Bonastruc ça Porta project started in the 1970s, when it became fashionable to renovate properties in the old town.
We will return in the evening.
