    Visiting the Museum has allowed us to learn about the history of the Jewish community of Seville. At the entrance, Rebecca directly put us in the mood by explaining to us through the centuries, the life of the Jews of Seville. We loved this visit and highly recommended.

    We did the Jewish walking tour of Seville with Virginia. It was a great tour explaining the history of the Jewish community in Seville and how they interacted with their neighbors at different times. ...  more »

    Hard to find, you'll be fine while, with a previous plan of the Jewish quarter and explanations. The Museum is small, but definitely worth a visit.

  • Excellent. Not your typical museum though. Be prepared to sit through a talk with a very knowledgeable historian. To get the most out of it, ask questions and make it a discussion. There's really no time limit, and our guide spent a lot of time on the details we cared about. The information and exhibits in the room augment the discussion. The Jewish history in Sevilla is rather complex, and the manner of presentation was well suited to work through the many possible paths and stories.
  • It's such a heavy piece of history to listen to; the guide lady told the story so completely. We enjoyed the visit. Although not much artifacts left, as it all happened almost 700 year ago. It's nice this place made an effort to keep the history.
  • The Center itself is fine, with limited artifacts but lots of material to learn from. But the real prize here is taking their tour of the Jewish Quarter. It covers history and culture and brings it all to life. Rebecca is a fantastic tour guide. And taking the tour includes access to the center. So do yourself a favor and take the tour, and learn about Seville and it's Jewish history. It's fantastic.
  • short, beautiful, fascinating and smart
  • This is an excellent little museum of Sephardic Jewish history in Sevilla. A must see

Where to stay in Seville

Seville's flat, grid-like city center makes it one of Spain's most walkable cities. While no part of the center is more than a 15-minute walk away, you might enjoy staying on one of the many picturesque cobblestone streets leading off from the famous Cathedral in Plaza España. Boutique hotels and historical apartment rentals intermix with the old quarter's tapa bars and Andalusian storefronts. Nearby, Barrio Santa Cruz is a bit quieter than the main plaza but still boasts the city's sought-after old-world charm. Across the river is the Triana neighborhood, where a lack of heavy tourism has preserved the strong local scene in this mainly residential area full of traditional restaurants and corner bars.
