  • within the area of the Jewish quarters is the Jewish quarters hotel which is of an only owner and that it has been buying houses surrounding one another gradually and now has over 170 rooms. You can get to explore the hotel and see the myriad of courtyards, sources, tiny halls, many of them below the street level. It is a delight.

  • Oneh was a very knowledgeable and friendly guide, and her tour was well paced. We toured the Jewish quarter on foot, saw former synagogues, a preserved Jewish tomb, and learnt about the rich and sad h...  more »
  • Our guide One made us relive bewitching history. She guided us for more than 1 hour through the narrow streets of the Jewish quarter of Seville and made us go back in time by drawing our attention to registration and plates which we could not notice without it. We recommend all tourists interested in the history of this tour.

  • 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.
  • Amazing hidden history of the Jews in Seville, and across Spain. Powerful authentic documents from the Inquisition on display, up close and personal. Stories to make your hair curl. Informative and kind staff. Visit takes about 45 minutes and you won't see the churches and cafés in the old city the same again.
  • 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.
  • Doesn't tell enough of a story.
