What to expect

An interactive guide map will take you around the Old Jewish Quarter in Barcelona to experience the history of the community while you stroll down the Gothic Quarter. You will also get the chance to watch a 3D video that will recreate the Jewish lifestyle, customs and peaceful community until the mass attack that the population encountered in 1391 which led to their extinction in Spain. The project collects a wide historical data that has been done by the Beit Jabad in Barcelona.

During your visit to the Major Synagogue, the guide map will give you a detailed explanation of the history and discovery of this important place. You will also stroll down narrow streets that date back to the Middle Age and find the symbols and buildings in the area which still conserve the Jewish identity. Discover the art and architecture of the old Synagogue (Sholo Ben Adret) as well as the house which was owned by a Jewish alchemist. Moreover, explore the small Jewish Quarter near the Roman wall.

Please note: Start your self-guided Jewish Quarter Experience at the Barcelona Call Jewish Shop and watch the 3D virtual video to go back in time. Exchange your voucher here for the Synagogue entrance and present it at the box office.
