Alcazar of Seville Early Access with Optional Seville Cathedral

416 reviews
For a relatively crowd-free experience of the Alcázar of Seville, opt for an early-access tour. By entering the UNESCO World Heritage Site before it opens to the public, you avoid long lines and take crowd-free photos of the landmark’s gorgeous interior. Plus, visit parts of the complex that conventional tours don’t. Upgraded package includes a line-free exploration of Seville Cathedral and Giralda Tower.

The Centro de Interpretación Judería de Sevilla is seemingly always open both on National, Christian and Jewish Holidays including Saturdays as it is not run by any religious organization nor the existing Jewish Community. It is a small but very very interesting museum showing the long and important history, roles, dress, gastronomy and culture that Jews of the Spain have given to the Iberian Peninsula. It also focuses on the “Sephardic Diaspora”, and how it has maintained its unique Spanish culture and memory in many other countries ranging from North Africa, the Ottoman Empire, the Balkans, England, Holland and as far flung as Bahamas & Brazil. Did you know that there are still Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) speaking communities in the world? In Istanbul, there were several Ladino Newspapers in circulation until relatively recently. I highly suggest taking the Walking tour of Seville to see the physical remnants and reminders that may otherwise be blind to the untrained eye. Visit the Building that is attributed to anti-Semitic folklore, see architecture that influenced the inquisition and even a Jewish tomb excavation that is horrifically placed inside a underground parking lot.

Centro de Interpretacion Juderia de Sevilla is a place where you can travel through time and experience something different. There is a number of exhibits and there is plenty of information to transport the visitor back into time as far as the Middle Ages and then read about and hear the stories of the Jewish people of Seville. It's an amazing collection of stories.

The website did not inform us that the museum was closed. We went there and found a sign on the door. Try calling (we didn't, because we didn't expect it to be closed). Maybe you'll manage to find out if it is open. Disappointing, of course.

I booked a walking tour with the Jewish Centre in Seville as a Christmas present for my husband (what do you give the man who has everything !). We have always sought out Jewish quarters when we travel though not being Jewish ourselves. We find the history of the Jews one that is increasingly hard to unravel. So off we went on a beautifully sunny morning in Seville with a simply wonderful guide. Over 2 hours he explained, theorised and gave anecdotes on not only the Jewish community in Seville but almost worldwide across the centuries (with excellent use of his tablet to illustrate things that sadly no longer exist). I doubt a professor in the subject could have been more comprehensive. Plus he was delightful and entertaining with excellent English. To be truthful there was little evidence left of the community in Seville - but that was part of the point. When you get to the underground car park you will understand.................

Very good walking tour of Jewish Seville. Brilliantly told by Rebecca, a very knowledgable historian with a particular interest in the jewish history in Seville. The walk lasted about 2 1/2 hours and was at a very easy pace with plenty of stops for information.
