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.

A Recent Review of this tour

The guide picked us up at the mandarin Oriental on time and was generous in taking us to the site and explaining the history of the jewish quarters in the history of barcelona and the history of Spain. We also had a viewing of the oldest synagogue in barcelona and we were very pleased with this tour.
