Barcelona Jewish Tour

Barcelona is a city rich in Jewish history that dates back to over 1,700 years ago. When exactly the first Jews arrived to Spain is an ongoing discussion among historians. It is widely believed that the first Jewish presence was around the 3rd Century (BCE). Over the centuries, the Jewish population in Barcelona grew steadily in numbers as well as in their political and religious significance. They lived in relative peace until 1391 when there was a brutal attack on the Jewish community, resulting in a dramatic end to the presence of Jews in Barcelona that would not see a reversal until the 20th Century.

During our tour we will bring back to life the story of the Jews here in Barcelona and show just how important Jewish people were to the city’s development and history.

What is the difference between the Jewish tour and the weekly Jewish tour?

The main difference between the Jewish Tour and the Weekly Jewish Tour is the number of participants: the Weekly Jewish Tour is a group tour whereas the Jewish Tour is a private one.

Are all the guides Jewish?

We want to make sure you have the best experience, and hence we ensure that all of our guides are extremely knowledgeable of the tour content. However, in order to visit the Gaudi monuments, the City Hall of Barcelona requires us to hire specific, special certified tour guides. We cannot assure that these guides will be Jewish.

We don’t stop for lunch doing our tours, but we can always stop for a snack.
There are a lot of coffee places and we are always trying to be very attentive to the clients’
