Travel to Sepharad, the lost land of the Spanish Jews and find out about the Senior family, one of the most important in the Medieval Era.

Description

Do you like Medieval history? Do you want to learn all about Jewish history in Segovia? Well, thanks to our Segovia Jewish Quarter Walking Tour you will learn many interesting facts about the Sephardic civilisation of this city.

The tour begins at the Jewish Quarter Education Centre (Centro Didáctico de la Judería) located in the street called Juderia Vieja where the information panels and new technology will allow you to discover how this minority lived in our country and specifically in this city. This centre is located in the old house of Abraham Senior, one of the most influential Jews in Segovia and someone the Catholic Kings trusted in and who achieved a high position within the Crown of Castille. 

The tour then heads through the Old Major Synagogue, that currently serves as the Convent of the Corpus Christi Order of St. Clare- a cloistered order. You will hear about intriguing facts like the orientation facing Cordoba which would suggest it having been erected on a previous mosque. Also, that is it not a particularly tall building because by law it could not be taller than the Christian temples or that it was where the Revolt of the Comuneros began in Segovia. 

Our Spanish speaking guide will also take you to St. Andrew´s Gate (Puerta de San Andrés) and from its city walls you will be able to contemplate the stunning views of the city and the old Jewish Cemetery. And if all of this was not enough, our Segovia Jewish Quarter Walking Tour includes free access to the Museum of Segovia allowing you to complete your visit.
