Visit the Jewish Quarter & the oldest documented synagogue in Europe

Explore the Jewish Quarter in Barcelona with a local expert and licensed guide!

This 3 hour private tour through Barcelona's old Medieval town will convey the past and present of one of the most prosperous Jewish communities in the Middle Ages in Europe.

The Jewish heritage tour is one of my specialized secrets and will allow you to discover the medieval Jewish quarter or enter into one of the oldest synagogues in Europe. As a matter of fact, the main synagogue is the oldest documented synagogue in Europe.

Today, the Jewish community is a dynamic part of civil society, with some 5. 000 members, fours synagogues and a school with 300 students. Witness the rebirth of this millenarian community with us.

This tour is suitable for shore excursions as well. Please notice that the total duration of the tour, inluding the personal pick up at the cruise ship port is 3 hours. If you prefer, you can meet me in a central location.

A Recent Review of this tour

Secrets of Barcelona!!! Mark is an amazing and knowledgeable guide. This was the highlight of our trip. We learned so much about the Inquisition and the history of Barcelona and the people of the city. We saw the significance of the Jewish people in parts of the old Jewish quarter and the old gothic quarter that we would have missed had we not had Mark to show and explain.
