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.

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 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.
Amazing hidden history of the Jews in Seville, and across Spain. Powerful authentic documents from the Inquisition on display, up close and personal. Stories to make your hair curl. Informative and kind staff. Visit takes about 45 minutes and you won't see the churches and cafés in the old city the same again.
The Center itself is fine, with limited artifacts but lots of material to learn from. But the real prize here is taking their tour of the Jewish Quarter. It covers history and culture and brings it all to life. Rebecca is a fantastic tour guide. And taking the tour includes access to the center. So do yourself a favor and take the tour, and learn about Seville and it's Jewish history. It's fantastic.
A lot of money for something like that.its ONE room with not so many things.
