About the tour

Jews, Christians, and Muslims lived and coexisted together most of the time in Medieval Segovia. And we can observe that as we walk. The Jewish community was quite relevant for the town and they lived in an important part of the city with two main gates by the walls . In our stroll in the beautiful former Jewish quarter of Segovia, we will see humble homes but also elegant and important ones in the main narrow street and nearby ones. We will pass by the former slaughterhouse, now transformed into an archeological museum and we will exit the quarter through the superb Puerta de San Andrés. This gate was essential for the Sefardi Jews of Segovia because many of them exited through it for what they called “the last journey”, either to the cemetery, close by or when they were expelled in 1492. We will also see the path they followed and the beautiful scenery from a lookout. ‘Shalom’ for everyone!

Jesus selects wonderful places to take his tours. He's a knowledgeable guide and his willingness to share his stories and history shine. Every tour I've done with Jesus is testament to his kind nature, and his love and respect of culture. On Mother's Day he even had a bunch of white flowers for mothers on the tour and his mother, who clearly had logged on, got a special greeting of appreciation from her son. Don' hesitate to go touring with Jesus. It's a precious experience, because Jesus goes out of his way to make it like that for the tourists.
