From the central plaza del Triunfo we will delve into the history of one of the three cultures that have marked our city: the Sephardic culture.
Tour los barrios de Santa Cruz y San Bartolomé that made up the Sevillian Jewry in Christian times.
Your licensed guide will begin the tour by the Giralda Tower, that neighbours the old quarters of Santa Cruz and San Bartolomé. This area was once inhabited by Jews, one of the three coexisting cultures that played a vital role in the city’ splendour.
To stroll through these labyrinthic alleyways and evoking streets is to hear the echoes of stories and legends by the ancient aljama wall which encircled the old Moorish and Jewish quarters.
The fall into disgrace of the Jews in Spain brought about the conversion or exile of this relevant community.
Learn where the gates and the synagogues were located and what lies behind the Palacio de Altamira, Santa Cruz Square and the churches of Santa María la Blanca and San Bartolomé,
among other hidden spots.
