“The Jewish heritage and the Major Synagogue” – TBL
We really enjoyed this tour. Francesc was very knowledgeable about the city and the Gothic and Jewish quarter. It’s a lot of walking, but we would never have seen the things we did, if we tried to do it on our own. Francesc commentary of the area helped us understand the history of the jews in Barcelona in the 13th and 14th centuries. The Jewish area itself was not that large, and the “small” temple was not as I has imagined. Very worth while for Jews and non jews alike

Francesc’s Response: Thank you Leon. You are right: for Jewish and no Jewish. Unfortunately Jewish people were expelled from the Aragon Crown and Castilla in the XVth Century and it’s just in this last decades that we are doing efforts to recover their memory. Thank you for letting me show it.
