The part of the old town which is the old Jewish quarters is called the Call. During the medieval time this is were the Jewish community lived and here they had the synagogue, the butcher selling kosher meet, and baths. In Catalonia the Jewish community was only bigger in Barcelona than in Girona. But in 1492, as in the rest of Spain, all Jews had to leave the country if they didn?t convert to Catholicism.
