THE OLDEST SYNAGOGUE IN SPAIN AND EUROPE

September 8, 2011

A visit to the medieval Jewish quarter of Barcelona is really worth it. In 1987, medievalist Jaume Riera y Sans took the first steps toward determining the precise location of what until 1391 had been the Sinagoga Mayor or Major Synagogue of Barcelona.

In article titled “Catalonia and the Jews” his initial suspicions regarding the synagogue’s whereabouts were corroborated by the reconstruction of the route a tax collector made in 1400 through the Old Jewish Quarter. The route terminated in front of the Major Synagouge.

 

 A guided tour through 18 centuries of history is really interesting. If you want to find out more, please visit www.calldebarcelona.org .
