TOLEDO

Designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986, Toledo have not stopped being a very unique city.

Unsurpassed in its details, its history, its culture and charm. The Three Cultures; Muslim, Hebrew and Christian, left their mark on the architectural, artistic and urban areas of the ancient and unique heritage. Churches, synagogues, mosques, monasteries, walls, bridges, towers and a number of cultural and artistic combinations that can be found on the buildings, makes Toledo a unique city.

Toledo is a great example of Spain’s golden age, where jews, christians and muslims lived together in harmony under the muslim control ,

Where some of the most important jewish poetry came from, like Judah Halevi (1086-1145).

A time where jews formed a very important part of the city in commerce and even played an important part in the government.

Of course a visit to Toledo is not complete without visiting “La sinagoga del tránsito”, a very impressive sinagoga rediscovered lately that now also holds the place to a jewish museum.

Losing yourself into its narrow streets, parks and gardens turns your visit into an experience that can’t be compared to any other.

Delve, look, ask … and if you can, here’s a recommendation: lose yourself through the streets.

AVILA

Designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO

“Avila, (…) the capital of Spain that lives closer to the sky, it is a tiny, calm, peaceful, walled, distant, noble and silent city. Avila, mystic and traditional, honest and tough, waiting timelessly, a friend at heart to whom one can communicate their diaphanous and mysterious secret.” Camilo José Cela

Avila is the most interesting and best preserved part of the medieval Spanish walled city. The churches, convents and monumental buildings, attached to their teresian memories, make this crowed Spanish population one of these peninsulas where the history of Spain and the way of life of medieval Europe, are expressed more fully.

Documented Jewish presence in Ávila dates back to 1144, but some legends say that there were jews in Ávila already in Roman times.

The jewish story of Ávila has been forgotten for many years, but lately the works of historians managed to recuperate that Ávila had a rich jewish life, with important part in the trade and comerce and synagogues. As well archaeologists managed to locate the place of the jewish cemetery.

Ávila was the home of a very important rabbi – Moshe de León – who was the composer of the Zohar, one of the most important kabbalistic books.

Ávila was as well the home of an interesting story, the story of Nissim Ben Abraham, also known as The Messiah from Ávila, a false messiah that the famous rabbi Salomon Ben Aderet was one of his big opposers.

So join us and our guides would bring back to life this forgotten part of Ávila’s history, the jewish history of Ávila.
