There used to be a huge jewish community in Sevilla, but they were driven away when the christians took power in the 15th century and today there are next to none.
The jewish quater is still there though and it´s one of the most pleasant parts of Sevilla and well worth a visit.

Cordoba is only an hour away by train. There is still a small synagoge next to the statue of Maimonides.

While a walk around the Old Jewish Quarter in Sevilla is interesting there is not an active Jewish community in the city.

You might find this article interesting:

There are some private Jewish walking tours offered. I didn't use any them so cannot say how good they are:

I didn't use any them so cannot say how good they are.

As noted above, Cordoba is an interesting place to visit if you are interested in Jewish history. The Casa de Sefarad, the ancient synagogue around the corner and the statue of Maimonides are all interesting.

More details of these on my Cordoba pages.

Travel Tips for Sevilla

Who IS this???

by Martin_S.

Now it is time to ask "Who was that masked man??"..
Well okay, so he is not masked, but who is he...there was a crowd following him around and there were photographers with tags on their lapels so he must be someone EVERYONE KNOWS, but WE DO NOT...
So if anyone can help me out here, just who did we see??

Scenes of the Guadalquiver River

by Martin_S.

Along the Guadalquiver River that runs through and seperates Sevilla into two, you find many small parks where you can take a few minutes to rest from your walks through the town. We also saw this lone kayaker with his trainer. These were the ONLY things moving on the river in contrast to the Seine in Paris where the waterway is crammed with tourist boats. The water and the banks along the river were actually quite clean which was a plesant surprise in a big city.

PLAZA DE ESPANA -- TILED BENCHES # 1

by LoriPori

Against the front facade of the main building, you will find beautiful tiled benches representing the Provinces of Spain. The first five tiled benches represent Cadiz - Canarias - Caceres - Burgos and Balearics.
Right in front of the tiled benches, there are tiled maps showing where the Province is located in Spain.

Feria de Abril

by FionaKate

Seville’s April Fair was founded in 1846, surprisingly, by two none-sevillians, a Basque and a Catalan. The initial aim of these two industrious founders was no other than to improve business (trade and agriculture).
However, in a few years time the local people managed to change the character of the fair into something more festive. It has now converted to one of the mayor folkloric celebrations in Spain and one of the main tourist attractions of Seville.
Even so, the local people still do trade and close deals at the fair, still complying with the original intentions of the April fair.
The “casetas” are made of a metal base and then covered with a green or red pin-striped canvas, each stripe about 10 cm. wide. At the outside of the tent you will find banisters and little triangle-shaped flags. The flags crown the facade of the tent with a baroque style, and sometimes show the casetas' name or logo. Also required are striped curtains at the entrance with a small canvas roof.
The inside of the tents are divided into three parts, usually separated by curtains. The first is the noble part which can not have advertising and is usually decorated by the tenants. The decoration should camouflage the second part. The floor is generally made of wooden planks. In the noble part a floor is set up suited for dancing.
There are more than a thousand individual tents (casetas) but still there are so many petitions for casetas that must be rejected, that city officials start c

Packing List

by Maggies

Be prepared for extreme hot weather in summer and take really light clothes. Always carry a bottle of water with you.Even in winter it's still pretty warm, I was there in late November and was still wearing t-shirt.
