Seville Jewish Culture and Cuisine Walking Tour
On this half day tour, we'll walk inside the former Jewish quarter of Seville to understand how our ancestors lived in Spain until they were expelled from Andalusia in 1483 and exiled from Spain in 1492. It's possible to walk through the area which once was occupied by the Jewish Quarter and to see the remains of the Synagogues that were converted to churches after the bloodshed of 1391. Moreover, there are some parts of the wall that once surrounded the Jewish Quarter which can be seen and even the remains of the Jewish cemetery from the XIII Century can be visited. The church of San Nicolás is also an important part of our journey, as is Andalucia's rich Kosher past. Pescaito frito (fried fish) is a traditional Shabbat dish popular amongst Andalusian Jews after synagogue on Saturday. You might also savor Polvo, a soft, crumbly Andalusian dessert containing flour, milk, sugar, olive oil and nuts. Following their introduction by the Arabs, the Spanish Inquisition demanded polvorones to only be made with pork fat – a way of exposing Jews and Muslims who were disguising themselves throughout the south of the country. By the end of the tour, you will not only have a deeper understanding of Seville's rich Jewish heritage, but you'll also gain a new appreciation for Jewish-Andalucian cuisine.
