The Jewish Barcelona with a private licensed guide


SHALOM

Barcelona had one of the most important Jewish communities in Europe. Its relationship with the city was of great importance to the city's history, but its relationship with the Christians was always tense. The 1391 events made them begin their exile, and with the Inquisition they disappeared entirely.

While we walk around their old Quarter, called "Call", we will discover their customs, why they weren't understood and what happened in 1391. We will see what were once their houses, some of them with the mezuzah mark on the door, the purification baths, the recently discovered Major Synagogue, the biggest of the 5 synagogues that the city had, and the Call Interpretation Centre (where they study everything to do with the Jewish people in Barcelona).

We will go into the Synagogue and the "Call" Interpretation Centre

Itinerary

Our entire visit is concentrated in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona.
- the old jewish Quarter (el "Call"), where the old jewish community was settled.
- the Major Synagogue: the oldest one in Europe.
- the Interpretation Centre el "Call" (where it's studied everything concerned to the Jewish heritage in Barcelona)
