Transfer to Toledo, the city of the Three Cultures, capital and essential reference of Sepharad (madinat al-Yahud, or city of the Jews), hosted an important Sephardic community for eleven centuries. The most eminent Jewish figures were educated in Toledo, like Abraham Ibn Ezra or even Yehuda Halevi. We will visit the synagogue Santa María la Blanca (New Synagogue Yosef Ben Shoshan, 14th century), as well as Synagogue del Tránsito. Our group will enjoy an exclusive visit to what is commonly referred to as the "Jewish House," a 14th century building located in the heart of the Jewish Quarter where the cellar conserves what might be a mikvah (purification bath) and plasterwork with the Hebrew inscription: "This is the gate of the Lord, the righteous will enter through it." After lunch, drive to Córdoba, Roman and Muslim capital, with one of the most important Jewish community heritage in Southern Europe.
Dinner and overnight: Córdoba
