About the tour

We will walk through the streets of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona and we will get into the corners and alleys that gave life to the Call, the Jewish quarter of the middle ages. How they lived, their trades, customs, illustrious personalities and the great cultural legacy that came to this day. We will listen to some of his music and we can see the beautiful hagadot of Catalonia that are still preserved (A compilation of books of Pesach, the Passover). We will know the largest synagogue, the oldest in Spain and one of the oldest in Europe. The prosperous and happy life of the Sephardic Jews in the Iberian Peninsula ended tragically and abruptly back in 1492 but over time, and despite the fact that more than 500 years passed, a new Hebrew life makes its way through these same streets and corners from the city. We will talk about what happened to the Sephardic and Catalan Jews during these centuries; and how they were returning to these lands. To finish the tour, we will go to the famous Mercado de la Boqueria to enjoy the best falafel in Barcelona. Handmade and with love for a beautiful Israeli who lives here years ago. A true delight. (Notice: Everyone pays their falafel - I invite the humus)

Una gran experiencia de principio a fin. Joni fue muy agradable en todo momento del tour. Muy ameno y divertido, con muchas anécdotas del barrio y reseñas históricas. Se ve que sabe mucho sobre la historia. Y el falafel exquisito. Muy recomendable todo!!
