The synagogue of Besalú
In the Jewish quarter are all the Jewish institutions and public buildings, except the cemetery. The main building was the synagogue, dating from the 12th century and located next to the Fluvià river. It is one of the oldest and well-preserved synagogues in Spain and is worth visiting to admire its architecture and learn more about Jewish life in the town.
Apart from the micvé, the synagogue complex has the patio where festivals and weddings were held; the school, where classes were given to children and adolescents, and the prayer room, with an upper gallery for women separated from the space for men.
