Concierge.com's insider take:

Girona, Catalonia's second city, an hour's train journey from Barcelona, is fortified by stone ramparts along the banks of the Onyar River—walk along the walls for an excellent bird's-eye view of the city. In addition to smart boutiques, there's a warren of narrow, shady streets and cool courtyards in the medieval quarter, and the Girona cathedral has an 11th-century Charlemagne tower, a beautifully preserved Romanesque cloister, and the world's widest gothic nave. Before a hundred years of persecution (1391 to 1492), the city had a sizable Jewish community, and the Call (Jewish quarter) is one of the best preserved Jewish quarter's in Europe. The Centre Bonastruc ça Porta, home to the Museum of the History of the Jews, is at its center. Take a short taxi ride from town for lunch at the stylish new home of El Celler de Can Roca, a Michelin-starred showcase for some of the most talented cooking in the country.
