Sevilla – the jewish tour

Jun 26, 2013   //   by Eva   //   Blog  //  Comments Off

P6192861One of the biggest jewish communities used to live in Juderiah the jewish quarter of Seville, before the inquisition in 1492.

After beeing completely destroyed the area is now beautifully rebuilt, but only 90 jews returned to live in Seville, none of them live in this area.

We didn’t realize before taking the jewish tour that almost nothing original remained to to be seen. Our tour guide who was had a great knowledge of history and made the tour worthwhile.

Bordeaux

Walking the rainy streets of Bordeaux. We were making up our own sight seeing tour, where the churches were once inhabited by giants, hence the large doors (Judah) and the fountains were in memory of the dance parties that used to be held every day on those squares (Yannay).
