One of the beautiful sections of The Grand Tour of Catalonia takes you from Figueres via Girona to Barcelona. It takes in the hometowns of Salvador Dali, Nahmanides (aka Ramban) and Antoni Gaudi. Click here for more on Barcelona and Gaudi.

In this episode, Mark and David take you from the crazy, surrealist world of Dali to the kabbalist Jewish center that was Girona - now a wonderfully-preserved old Jewish quarter.
