Routes of Sefarad
A journey in time through Jewish Spain
For many centuries, until 1492, the Iberian Peninsula was a mosaic of peoples, cultures and religions. The presence until this time of Jewish communities embellished the urban geography of Spain, specially in Castilla y León. These communities developed their own culture, practised their customs and their religion and went about their social life in close contact with both Christian and Arab communities. The wealth left by this reality is a common inheritance, a collective heritage of many of Spain´s peoples. The Routes of Sefarad are a suggested journey through the most notable Jewish quarters.
