I wished our tour guide would have told us a bit more about this place. There is another tour that is 2 hours long. Small area-nice.

The Jewish Quarter is an absolutely stunning historic and beautiful area to walk round. I had the advantage of doing this in January midweek which meant I had no other tourists to contend with but it would be great place to walk round at any time. Highly Recommended.

Beautiful yet sombre. But it is hard to walk in the Jewish quarter without reflecting upon the terrible tragedy that happened in this place. As elsewhere in Spain, not a single monument to remember the victims and no word of apology for the destruction of Jewish life in Spain.

Like a number of old quarters this did not disappoint. Just meandered at a leisurely place having a look in museums and shops as the chance arose.

Romantic and so many great restaurants.. Winding walkable streets. Lots of shopping through out. Pleasurable together or alone.

My wife and first explored the quarter after a late dinner and had fun going up down and around the narrow passageways; the late night lighting gave it a magical feel, weighty. Ending up in the plaza in front of the Cathedral all by ourselves and then walking back down the stone paths was like being transported back in time.... More

You will love to wander and wonder in the Old Jewish quarter. The Jewish museum will complete a great activity.

Traveling in small alleys at night was very fun. I felt safe all along and got a real feel of what could be the life in the medieval time. Everywhere you look there's interesting stuff. So much history there.
