Centro De Interpretacion Juderia De Sevilla - Review
Many centuries before the Holocaust this city witnessed a massacre of Jewish people that was equally terrible even if at a smaller scale. Back in the 12th and 13th centuries the Santa Cruz quarter of the city was this city’s Jewish neighborhood. Bankers, lawyers, doctors, bakers, scientists and priests - these all lived here. But then came the infamous Spanish Inquisition. Under the Catholic Church the Jewish peoples of Seville very brutally stamped out. This Museum, even though small, is very information dense. It offers a great insight into the ethnographic history of the Jewish people of the city - personal stories, daily rituals, old artifacts, and also stories of the persecution they suffered.

Centro De Interpretacion Juderia De Sevilla, Seville Reviews
Nice small place of memories. Entrance price too high
A long way to go for a few facsimile documents and wall-charts. However a tour of the Mediaeval Jewish quarter of Seville with one of the staff make it worthwhile.
Excellent. Not your typical museum though. Be prepared to sit through a talk with a very knowledgeable historian. To get the most out of it, ask questions and make it a discussion. There's really no time limit, and our guide spent a lot of time on the details we cared about. The information and exhibits in the room augment the discussion. The Jewish history in Sevilla is rather complex, and the manner of presentation was well suited to work through the many possible paths and stories.
It's a small place, not a lot of pieces. Great information at the front desk by a nice woman who explain the whole story..
It's such a heavy piece of history to listen to; the guide lady told the story so completely. We enjoyed the visit. Although not much artifacts left, as it all happened almost 700 year ago. It's nice this place made an effort to keep the history.
