  • I "fell in love" for this neighborhood very endearing Santa Cruz... having discovered that this small private museum tours of the Jewish of Seville quarter, I spent half a day in the company of the very competent Rebecca. She allowed me to decipher the signs, know the history of these Sephardic that shaped the city and the life of the Andalusian capital. The two-hour visit often lasts much longer because Rebecca does not spare his sentence and that the questions are abundant on the part of an audience is curious and cultivated or of Sephardic origin and seeking to deepen its knowledge of its roots. Whether it's the mikveh, the graves in car parks, the Jewish inscriptions or myths decrypted, everything is described, told, proved... and bonus one receives by e-mail a very full docket and a bibliography. More than a simple memory piece, this institution revitalizes a culture and an identity. I very highly recommend to all!

  • Unfortunately, we had scheduled this visit the last day of our stay in Seville. It was an unforgettable moment as Virginia allowed us to see so many places and signs that is suspected, but allowed us to understand the history of the city, the relations between the different communities and the chronology of the facts. In addition, his kindness and his accent are valuable assets. A plan early in your stay.

Our guide Virginia was inexhaustible and exciting, and we learned from it a lot of things about the history of this neighborhood! Do not hesitate a second, you can go with your eyes closed: this tour is a must to understand the history of Seville

  • This is an excellent little museum of Sephardic Jewish history in Sevilla. A must see
  • The remains of the passage of the Jews in Seville are very poor, but guided tours of this centre are simply indispensable. To do if you are passing and you want to understand the history of Seville, and its role in the inquisition!
