Tour Summary

The Jewish Sephardic Heritage to be found in the roots and archives of the history of Andalucia is undeniable.

We have developed this tour carefully and sensitively as we have been piecing the puzzle together ourselves. This itinerary is based on our findings and readings. As we take in many of the highlights of this stunning region, we will be basing our tours and cultural visits on Andalucia’s intrinsic Sephardic Heritage and how Al Andalus was a meeting place and melting pot of three great cultures and religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

In this tour, we travel through the memory of the Sephardic past and uncover the riches of that time in history. Only in investigating, accepting, understanding and processing the past, do we make way for the future. Solo travellers are always more than welcome to join our tours, we guarantee you will be made to feel welcome and included.
