Room dedicated to the Jewish cemetery, with funerary stones from the Girona’s Montjuïc.

An imaginary walk through what had been the cemetery of the Jewish community since the 13th century, located in the north of the city. A light-up panel shows the route the funeral processions had taken then from Jewish Quarter to the graveyard. The tombstones shown here feature beautiful epitaphs written in memory of the Jews who lived in the city.
