Barcelona Jewish Tours

Revisiting Jewish heritage in Barcelona
and the memory of Sepharad


During the Middle Ages Jewish life flourished in Sepharad as perhaps nowhere else. Jews were integrated, in the Call of Barcelona, the juderias of Cordoba and Toledo; in the cabalistic circles of Gerona or as advisors and physicians to kings.

With the Edict of expulsion of 1492, Jews were faced with a stark choice: leave or convert to Catholicism, and only some of these conversos continued to practice their tradition in hiding. Although most of the Jewish legacy was lost, one can revisit the rich culture and history while walking the streets where Jews once lived.

Once again, Jewish life blooms in Barcelona and other cities, with celebrations of B'nei mitzvah, Shabbat and the High Holidays, Film Festival, Hebrew study and new works of art.

Since 1997 Urban Cultours organizes Jewish tours in Barcelona as well as programs focused on past and present Jewish life, and helps plan events with authentic Jewish content for visitors from all over the world and for locals.

Urban Cultours project adds to initiatives that enrichen our culture and tradition, contributing to the continuity, development and promotion of Jewish identity.

 

Two decades of walking, step by step, narrating our story, sharing experiences
and emotions, creating bonds, expanding our very large family.
These chagim cards, specially designed by Andrea Tomasov,
kept us connected and in touch all along these years.
