Night Walking Tour of Jewish Quarters of Sagunto | Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche | #semahdevalencia

Another adventure in our quest for Sephardic heritage was to do a night walking tour in the narrow streets of the old Jewish Quarters of Sagunto.

Night tour of the Jewish quarter of Sagunto. After the assault on the Jewish quarter of Valencia in 1391, the Saguntine aljama took over from Valencia and became the most important of the Kingdom. (descubrevalencia.es)

Quiero Cultura is one of the tour operators that offer outdoors walking tours to historic and cultural places of Sagunto.

Tour included stops in several places to display slides to illustrate and complement the outdoors learning experience.

We crossed several arches and visited two medieval jewish cemeteries outside the Castle of Sagunto.

Tours are organized each Saturday during summer months and once a month the rest of the year.

Other night walking tours include visits to all churches, way of the cross, and cemeteries. Outdoors classrooms at night.

We continue finding new information about our #SemahDeValencia family and our Sephardic heritage.

@vamospedaleando🇪🇸 Lamentablemente, me robaron a Maca una hora antes de emprender mi rumbo de Barcelona a Madrid 😭. Me han quitado mi medio de transporte, mi herramienta de trabajo, mi compañera, mi diversion, mi terapia anti estrés, anti tristeza, y anti toda sensación negativa que exista. Me da tanta rabia y tanta tristeza al mismo tiempo que ahora no siento ninguna de las dos, solo siento impotencia. Solo puedo decir que volveré a la ruta, no se cuando, ni como, pero seguiremos pedaleando ✋🏽❤️

🇬🇧 Sadly, my bike got stolen one hour before leaving from Barcelona to Madrid. I am so mad and so sad at the same time that I don’t even know what Im feeling. All I have to say is that I will be back on the road. I don’t know when, or how I will do it, but I will continue cycling around ✋🏽❤️
