Room dedicated to the Jewish cultural heritage.

Quite a few Catalan Jews played major roles in medieval science, literature and philosophy. The large panel presiding over the room is a tribute to these illustrious personalities. Among these, Mossé ben Nahman, or Nachmanides, the "Master of Girona", stands out. This most important figure of Girona's Jewish community in the Middles Ages has his own reserved space in the exhibition, highlighting the quality and reputation of his work, as well as the trajectory of his life from Girona to the Land of Israel.
