Jewish Heritage Tour of Spain & Portugal

Later this afternoon, your Seville guide, additionally qualified in Jewish Heritage of Spain, will be waiting for you in the hotel reception and you will depart for a sightseeing tour, starting in the old Jewish quarter. Once King Ferdinand III conquered the city in 1248, one of the largest Jewish communities in Spain came to Seville, second only to that of Toledo. After the Alhambra Decree of 1492 expelled the Jews from Spain in 1483, the neighborhood went downhill. In the 18th century, Barrio Santa Cruz underwent a major process of urban renewal, including the conversion of a former synagogue into the current Church of Saint Bartholomew. Just outside the neighborhood is the Iglesia de Santa Maria de las Nieves (“Church of Saint Mary of the Snows”), a converted 14th century Mudejar synagogue. Relive the past as your guide recounts bygone days and you discover the history of Susanna Ben Suzon and visit the original wall and the synagogue-church.

You will have worked up an appetite on this fascinating tour so your guide will lead you now to a tantalizingly delicious tapas dinner. Plate after plate of hot and cold food appears on the bar to tempt your palate, so maybe try cold roasted pepper salad or anchovies in vinegar, a hot dish of meatballs in sauce or a slice of potato omelette…..the choice is yours!

Tour in a nutshell:1st class high-speed train tickets to Seville. Private guided tour of Seville. Tapas dinner with wine. Overnight in a beautiful 5* boutique hotel in the heart of Seville.

DAY 8 CORDOBA

Former home of many Jewish scholars and poets awaits you today, in Cordoba. Along with our officially licensed tour guide you will explore everything that Cordoba has to delight. Once the biggest city in all of Europe, Cordoba thrived and expanded with its unique blend of cultures. These are beautifully expressed with a visit to Mezquita, the most significant Muslim architectural achievement in the Western world. You will walk the street leading up to the Juderia with its whitewashed houses and colorful courtyards and shops. The narrow medieval streets of the Barrio de la Juderia retain their names to this day and although not Jewish in their current expression, a few signs hint of the Golden Age of Jewish life. In the Calle de los Judios note, for example, the statue of the great court doctor and Torah sage, Maimonides (Rabbi Moshe Ben Maimon) and the tiny, gem-like Maimondes Synagogue. As you wander down picturesque and evocative streets in the restored heart of Cordoba, listening to our guide, a real expert on Cordoba Jewish Heritage, who will share with you many fascinating stories and anecdotes, it will not be difficult to imagine the days when Cordoba was one of the most important Jewish communities in Europe.

Maybe you would like to visit the Plaza De Espana and take a stroll in the Maria Luisa Park which is to the south of the center and for lunch why not continue to enjoy the fabulous Andalusian gastronomy? Why not explore the streets of Barrio Santa Cruz? It is a real joy to amble around its beautiful squares and narrow streets, which form a labyrinth, where it is easy to get lost, but this is part of its charm, because when one is lost, one may discover a convent or a palace or an hotel. The air in the barrio is perfumed by jasmine flowers and the orange trees that one finds there. Many of the palaces have wrought iron gates that allow one to peep into their beautiful patios. The area abounds in small stores and artisan shops, as well as good art galleries.

In the evening prepare yourself to be wowed with a wonderful Gypsy Flamenco Show, where the swirling skirts and tapping heels of the dancers will excite and amaze the senses.

DAY 10 FARO & EVORA

Jewish Heritage Tour of Spain & Portugal

Your Jewish Heritage Tour leaves behind Spain today and takes you to Portugal! You are heading to the walled city of Evora, but on the way you will make a detour to the beautiful Algarve area to stop and stretch your legs in Faro. Faro Cathedral originates from the 13th/14th centuries and may not look very grand from the outside, but inside is another story with intricate gilded carving, decorated tiles (azulejos) and works of art that are well worth seeing! Medieval Faro had a Jewish quarter that was noted for being the site of the first real experience with printing in Portugal, with the publication of the Pentateuch in Hebrew by Samuel Gacon in 1487. After the expulsion of the Jews in 1496, the decline in the Jewish quarter and the consequent dispersal of its inhabitants were not reversed until the 19th century, when a prosperous community of Jews from Gibraltar and Morocco settled in Faro making a great contribution to the growth of local trade. This community took the initiative of building two synagogues, which later, with the almost complete disappearance of the Jewish population, fell into ruins.

After a delicious local lunch with wines your journey continues to Evora, where you are staying at an elegant 5* spa hotel. It was originally built and funded by one of the kings in Portugal as a place to come to escape Lisbon and have some quiet time. Later this afternoon your hotel provides a fascinating tour for guests to learn of the old convent building, and with their sommelier you can try the nectars from their collection of wines! We recommend you have dinner at your hotel this evening.

Tour in a nutshell: Chauffeured transfer. Faro for sightseeing and lunch with wine. Overnight in a renovated convent now a luxury 5* spa hotel in Evora.

DAY 11 LISBON

Jewish Heritage Tour of Spain & Portugal

This morning our officially licensed guide will meet you at your hotel to take you on a walking tour of the historical center of Evora. The Romans were here, leaving their 1st century Temple behind, but so were the Moors who occupied the narrow streets with quaint small white washed houses. One of the largest Jewish communities existed here up to the 15th century. The Judiaria had two synagogues, a hospital, a Midrash, baths and lively commerce. The Inquisition’s Court in Evora however processed more than 9500 people for Judaism and now, present day, you will see the former Court of the Inquisition still displays the cross with the sword and olive branch.

You will head to the emblematic St George’s Castle, where you will be able to take in the impressive views over the sea. Leading down from the castle to the river, you will cross the Alfama, whose tangled street plan is one of Old World color. Next, on to the Baixa-Pombalina area where there were once two important Jewish quarters: the Judiaria Grande and the Judiaria Pequena, created during the reign of Dom Dinis (1279-1325). The Jews of Portugal, throughout history, held social and political ranks with the favor of kings, and conciliatory relations between Muslims and Christians alike. However, these periods were equally marked by inquisitions, forced baptisms and brutal massacres. Lisbon is no different, and at the Praca Dom Pedro, the Court of the Inquisition was held in the Palacio dos Estaus, where the Dona Maria national theater, built in the 19th century, now stands.

A wonderful tasting lunch of specialities such as typical Bacalhau (dried, salted cod), Azeitao cheese, traditional sweets and more, awaits.

Your Jewish Heritage Tour leaves you free to discover Lisbon on your own. Lisbon is also known as the town of seven hills which are composed of: Castelo, Graca, Monte, Penha de Franca, S.Pedro de Alcantara, Santa Catarina and Estrela. An uphill walk will be tiring but the views over the beautiful bay well worth it! Alternatively, maybe take a ride on one of the famous trams which were originally called Americanos, none of which are more iconic than Tram #28. Starting below the palm-spotted hills of Graça, the journey weaves around the hair-pin alleys of Escolas Gerais, before pulling up to a halt beneath the gorgeous domes of the Estrela Basilica. This neoclassical monument is one of Lisbon’s most eye-catching landmarks and the serene pink and black marble interior contains an elaborate Empire-style tomb of Queen Maria I, who vowed to build it when she gave birth to an heir. It has a huge rococo dome and a façade with twin bell towers decorated with an array of statues of saints and allegorical figures. For fantastic city views, head up to the dome. Across from Estrela Basilica is the beautiful park of Jardim da Estrela, one of the loveliest in the city and a favorite with families. There are exotic plants and trees, a small duck-dotted lake, and an attractive wrought-iron gazebo that serves as an old-fashioned bandstand. The pond-side café is a good place for a well-earned coffee break to rest your feet and watch the people passing by.

Otherwise you may like to head to Belem, a picturesque harbor district west of Lisbon from where ships set sail around the world, and from where many of the 14th century ‘Voyages of Discovery’ departed.

Tomar is an outstanding town dominated by a 12th-century Templar Castle, as well as having the oldest synagogue in Portugal, built in the 15th century. Today it houses the Abraham Zacuto Portuguese-Jewish Museum, displaying a variety of interesting artefacts from Tomar and around the world. You will have a tour of the Synagogue with the docent who will explain the history and significance of the place. After a delicious lunch of Portuguese cuisine and wine, your journey continues to Coimbra. Coimbra is one of Portugal’s oldest cities and home to one of the world’s first universities and at one time, the city had three Jewish quarters. Coimbra played a major role in the inquisition in Portugal and most of its Jewish heritage was destroyed and many Jews were executed, expelled from the country or forced to convert to Christianity. With an expert local guide, you will undertake a guided walking tour of Coimbra to include both the Old Jewry and New Jewry.

The Jewish quarter of the city was situated deep in the heart of the village, which, in the 12th century, was located near the Cathedral, and where some Jewish altars still survive in private estates. On some door frames, you will find Christian crosses that Jews used to carve on the stone walls of their houses to know that New-Christians lived there. Porto’s first synagogue stood in what is today known as Rua de Santana and, as the city developed, the Jewish community spread towards the river. You will walk down to Praca da Ribeira, its adjacent streets and the Boavista area, which was the hub of Jewish life in the 17th and 18th centuries.
