RECOMMENDED ITINERARIES

Sepharad: A Paradise Lost and Found (Seville, Córdoba, Úbeda and Lucena)

  • Feel the presence of the millennial Jewish history on the streets of what was and is the home of the Judeo-Spanish and Sephardic people.
  • Walk through history in some of the most important Andalusian Jewish and Christian quarters from medieval times, where the scholars radiated the light of their knowledge through science, philosophy, spirituality, poetry and more, bridging the Eastern and Western worlds.
  • Enjoy the beauty and magic of their streets and enjoy their culture: music, gastronomy, customs that formed a part of diverse religions and people – Jews, Muslims and Christians – coexisting and enriching their legacy.

Sepharad and the Sephardic Diaspora: Morocco 

  • Homes left behind: Córdoba and Seville, and passageways of hope and refuge discovered: Tarifa, Tangier, Tetuán and Chefchaouen
  • Feel the presence of the millennial Jewish history on the streets of what was and is the home of the Judeo-Spanish and Sephardic people.
  • Follow the paths of the Sephardic Jews to exotic places of great beauty and mystery.  Live the culture that they kept alive as the love for the abandoned homeland, and melding it with the indigenous culture of the legendary country of Morocco, becoming a great refuge for the Sephardic and propagating values of coexistence and popular culture.

Sepharad: Spain & Portugal

  • Sefarad is the name given by the Ancient Hebrews to the Iberian Peninsula.
  • Seville, Córdoba, Toledo, Lisbon: sites of great beauty and charm, and the cradle of important and brilliant Jewish quarters that fought tirelessly to survive, with their resident Jews and “cryptoJews” (also known as marranos), sharing the same fate.  Lose yourself in the streets of these charming city centers, feeling the weight of the very history that has transformed them into today’s vibrant present-day culture, and enjoy the cities’ gastronomy, music and people.
  • Visit these wonderful cities with great personality, all due to their poignant history and enriched by the diversity of their mixed cultures.
