The old Jewish Quarter has much to be seen whether yiou are Jewish or not. The start of the old Quarter is now a Church, but yiu can step into the courtyard and imagine Jews gathering there before Prayer. The old Sephardi Synagogues at the...More
We are not Jewish but this museum was amazing and very well put together, without being at all boring. It gave us an idea of what being Jewish must be like and dispelled some of our previous ideas about Judaism. Well done!
We visited the Jewish Quarter as part of day excursion from Madrid with Amigo Brothers. This is the quarter where the Jews lived for centuries until they were expelled in 1492 by Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand of Spain.

Toledo is noted for its multi religious heritage, and it has a Moslem quarter as well as a Jewish quarter. The Jewish quarter is a very popular tourist venue and includes several historic synagogues. One is the El Transito Synagogue which houses the Sephardic Museum,...More
It’s not necessarily obvious that you’re in the old Jewish quarter of the city, unless you catch sight of occasional hints such as Jewish symbols on walls or on the pavement. But the area is very peaceful, and a pleasant area in which to stroll....More
You can best recognize you are in the Jewish quarter by the little icons in the street and the walls. You hardly see any Jewish inhabitants walking around in traditional costumes, like for instance in Antwerp.
Little alleys, beautiful buildings, and some monuments you can...More

It is very simple to travel to Segovia and Toledo when you are in Spain, visit the train station and from the ticket booths choose the relative routes from where you will be staying and plan your trip accordingly. If you will driving yourself, the roads are very safe. Once you arrive in Toledo, the city is very welcoming and you will find street maps that will help you to reach the beautiful Jewish quarter. Segovia is an absolute treasure and straightforward to move around. If you want photos email me on jobon70 at yahoo com. Make the best of this visit, enjoy it to the full.

We did our escorted tour thru Gate 1 Travel. I give it 4 stars out of 5 for service and facilities we stayed at. It was a 10day tour...Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, etc..Not bad if 'escorted' tours are your thing tho one still got some free time in each city to do your free time exploration. If I had to do this I would choose just maybe Toledo and Madrid and spend 3-4 days in each and do my own exploration.
