Room dedicated to professions and trades.

Images taken from medieval documents give us an idea of the main occupations of the Jewish inhabitants of Girona. Craftsmanship, commerce and money-lending were the most important among them. In addition, the literacy imposed on the boys by the Jewish religion gave rise to an outstanding scientific specialization, with well-known doctors, cartographers or astronomers.
