The Tourist Office of Spain in Los Angeles
invites you to visit Sephardic Spain with
Special Programs for the Jewish Traveler.

More Jewish travelers are visiting Spain than ever before. Next to Israel, Spain has become the most important destination for the Jewish traveler wanting to discover their roots, legacy and the essential role they played in the culture and history of Spain.

The glorious and tragic history of the Spanish Jews and their Sephardic heritage dates back 2000 years. Their contribution is hard to measure. Many poets, mathematicians, doctors, astrologers, linguists, philosophers and translators rose to recognition during the Jewish Golden Age in Spain. History also shows us that there were some differences between the Jewish Communities in the North which were influenced by the Kabbalah teachings and philosophy, while in the South they were also influenced by arts and poetry. It’s difficult to find a people who reached such heights, leaving such a valuable legacy.
