These pics are from the House of the Eight Mezzuzahs in Girona. The only pic I took of the interior was of the contemporary staircase in the entry room to the quarters of the woman who lives in that house. I was too moved when I went into that space to think about taking photos, regretfully now, but what I most remember is the incredible feeling of peace. It overwhelmed me, brought me to tears. I came away with the knowledge that despite the tragic end brought to the Jewish people of Girona, they had lived in peace in that town fro many centuries. It was a great gift to me that Rosa allowed me to enter the house where I experienced the joy of that knowing.
