What to Expect
Learn the story of the Jewish community in Barcelona on a private walking tour of the Gothic Quarter.

Listen as a personal guide brings the history to life, and explains how important the Jewish people were to the development of Barcelona through the centuries. Go to Spain's oldest synagogue, and stroll down narrow alleys that date back to the Middle Ages.

It is estimated that the Jewish community began to arrive in Spain in the 3rd century, following the destruction of the Second Temple in Jerusalem in 70 CE. Your guide will describe how the Jewish population grew steadily in Barcelona, becoming more and more important politically and spiritually.

Learn how the Jewish community lived in relative peace until 1391, when a brutal attack brought a dramatic end to their presence in Spain. Soak up the art and architecture of the ruins of a house owned by a Jewish alchemist, and see the unique Mikve from medieval times. Go to the ruins of the Old Synagogue (Shlomo Ben Adret), and explore the small Jewish Quarter around the Roman walls.
