Girona, Spain

To sample some of Catalonia’s culture and shopping, make a day trip to the medieval center of Girona, with its Gothic churches and narrow cobblestoned streets lined with boutiques. Among the most popular sites are the Girona Cathedral, a Gothic church from the 14th century built on the foundation of a Roman forum, and the Girona Museum of Art next door. Also worth a visit is the Jewish History Museum to learn about the city’s Jewish community, expelled during the Inquisition.
