Jewish Heritage

Jewish Heritage has been an integral part of our trips since we first began arranging custom itineraries. We have built up a network of hand-picked local guides with a deep knowledge of the history of the Jewish community in Spain. With them uncover the centuries-old and often complex Jewish history of Spain.

Jewish architecture, former Jewish Calls, Juderias and synagogues and newly opened Sephardic Museums all help piece together how the Sephardi community lived, worked and worshipped before expulsion from Spain in 1492.

Jewish heritage is present in villages and towns all over Spain from the best known examples of Toledo, Cordoba and Girona to other sites in Barcelona, Segovia and even Granada. We work with a handful of Jewish guides who take you on a journey, from the role played by the Jews in establishing and maintaining Al Andaluz as the major economic and financial power of the age to the historic mistake of sending Jews into exile in 1492.

Up to 3.5 million people around the world are thought to have Sephardic – Hebrew for “Spanish” – Jewish ancestry and in 2014 it was announced that the descendants of Sephardic Jews who were expelled from Spain by the Alhambra Decree of 1492 would be offered Spanish citizenship, without being required to move to Spain and/or renounce any other citizenship they may have elsewhere. Whether you’re looking to explore your ancestral history or simply seek to learn more about Jewish Heritage in Spain, we have the connections and guides to make it happen.
