The splendor of the Medieval Jewish Heritage of Barcelona


This two hour walking tour will take us to the narrowest alleys of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona to experience how the life of the biggest jewish community of the Kingdom of Aragon and Catalunya was during the Middle Ages. We will visit the greater medieval Synagogue of Barcelona and the Museum of the jewish heritage of Barcelona. We will discover the important role this community played not only in the every day life of the city of Barcelona and the Kingdom of Aragon but also how important and well connected the Talmudic and Kabbalah scholars from Barcelona were with other jewish scholars from jewish communities around the Mediterranean. We will learn about the local key talmudic law and Kabbalah scholars from the middle ages whose works are still studied now a days.

*If you book the tour on Saturday please keep in mind that the Synagogue will be closed due to Sabbath.

Cayetano knows and loves the cIty of Barcelona, and it shows! He brings the history of the city to life with his knowledge of the old town and its history, which he presents clearly and with humor. We learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Highest possible recommendation!
