The "City of the Four Rivers”, Girona is set in the valley of the Ter, at the confluence of four rivers. One of them, the Onyar, separates the historic center on its right bank from the gleaming commercial center on the left. Girona was founded by the Iberians, expanded by the Romans (who named it Gerunda), conquered by the Visigoths, then Moors, and finally by Charlemagne. By the 12th century, it was home to a large Jewish community. One of the most important Kabbalistic schools in Europe was located in Girona. The old center of this Catalan city preserves remains of its long history. The original Roman wall remains stretch from the Archaeological Walk to the Wall Gardens. Its historic center is dominated by medieval buildings and reminders of Romans, Arabs and Jews, with museums, galleries and Gothic churches.
