Overview
Barcelona boasts many significant attractions, but its less well known Jewish history offers valuable insight into the city’s cultural heritage. Learn more with a private walking tour of the Catalonian capital, and visit some of its most significant Jewish landmarks, including the Ancient Synagogue, former Synagogue Poca, and a ‘mikve’, or medieval ceremonial bath. Enjoy the undivided attention of your private guide and avoid hidden costs with entrance fees included.
What to Expect

Begin your tour in the center of the historic Jewish Quarter. Walk with your personal guide to the Ancient Synagogue of Barcelona, and visit the house of Rabbi Shlomo ben Aderet. Stroll by the old gates and wall, and view the former Synagogue Poca, now a church.

Wander on to the historic Plaza del Rey, the site where Columbus announced his “discovery” of a New World, and as you stroll, notice the many Hebrew inscriptions throughout the city, many hidden in plain sight. Locate the sites of 3 former synagogues, before visiting the city’s dedication to Samuel Hasefardi. Explore the newly discovered medieval 'mikve', a ceremonial Jewish bath, before concluding your tour in the Placa de Sant Jaume.
