The doors, as a physical and symbolical element, have an outstanding meaning in the history, the culture and the life of the Jewish communities which, coming from different places, arrived at the lands of Sepharad.
The exhibition is organised in 3 areas:
Outer doors > doors of life and exile
Doors to the holy areas > doors of the synagogues
Doors to the private areas > doors of the houses
Hundreds of Hebrew texts appear inside the covers of medieval books preserved at the Historic Archives of Girona.
Once recovered and restored, these texts will constitute one of the most important sources of medieval manuscripts in Europe.
