When we first arrived in Barcelona we were amazed by the beauty of the city; the architecture, the culture, the surrounding landscape. The city truly spoke to our hearts and we were equally amazed to learn that Barcelona has a rich Jewish history dating all the way back to Roman times that often remains untold.
As graduates of History and Geography we made it our mission to bring the story of the Jewish in Barcelona back to life and to share our knowledge and passion for the city and its culture with visitors.
Over the last few years we have been delighted to see an increased awareness and interest in the history of local Jewish people and invite you to join us on a wonderful and illuminating journey back in time to the golden Jewish age in Barcelona.
