Urban regeneration and cultural development of Girona.

This chapter uses the specific context of Girona (Spain) and its urban recovery plan which stretches over four decades, to map out a descriptive overview of the chronology of restoration and preservation of historic and heritage sites. Embedded within this descriptive overview is the theme of emerging/growing tourism and its recognition as an important part of the City Plan, which was implemented in 1994 and had the ambition of making Girona a European city of tourism. At the heart of this plan is the recognition that the cultural heritage of the city, and in particular the Jewish Quarter and Arabian baths, would be promoted for tourism consumption but crucially alongside the regeneration of local-level facilities within the city that conserve the community and cultural dynamic.
