Overview

In the free tour of the Realejo we will discover, with the help of the official guide, the oldest neighborhood in the city, behind it is an amazing history of the Jewish quarter.

A walking tour of about two hours where we will discover the culture of this Jewish quarter, how they lived together in the city and the problems they had due to their roots and great skills in business and science. You will know its origin, its evolution and its captivating history.

They will also see the impact that Granada Jews had on our day to day.

It is a walking tour and we are going to introduce ourselves to the Jewish culture. We begin by explaining the life and customs of the Jewish quarter and in modern life, how Christians and Muslims lived with them. We will see the division of the city of Granada and the implantation of different churches in its neighborhoods.

We can see how little by little such a strong culture that dealt with large businesses and having great customs was being extinguished by Christianity.

We will explain what their trades were like, what they did, how they had contact with North Africa and Asia to bring different fabrics that generated trade and a great scientific advance in the city of Granada.

We will explain different festivals, for example the May crosses.

In the Plaza del Campo Príncipe we will reveal a bit of the history of the Catholic Monarchs and some references to the Jews that we can see today, for example the name of the greñuos, which is how the people of the Realejo neighborhood are nicknamed. Enjoy your holidays with us.
