What you'll do

During this experience, we will explore the Jewish culture and traditions in Barcelona and add in some important facts about the city. We will see the house of the rashba and visit a synagogue considered to be one of the oldest in the world. We'll take in Casa de la Ciutat—the City Hall, a Roman temple, and find Hebrew inscriptions in some surprising places. Many hidden spots we will see are only known by the locals. We'll even visit the Mikve. It will be a fascinating trip back in time, in one of the best preserved districts of Barcelona—the old Jewish quarter.
Other things to note
The experience will be an easy two hour walk. Just bring water, a camera, and a good mood.

I was born in Denmark and brought up in a small kibbutz in Israel. I've been a guide for close to 10 years and I know Barcelona like the back of my hand. I have a degree in history and geography, and I'm also a musician. I'm very friendly and love meeting new people and sharing my knowledge with them. I will be happy to meet you as well and we will have fun together. If you are a music lover, I invite you to check out my musical project—BCN World Music Project.

Adi was a terrific, knowledgeable and personable guide to the Jewish history of Barcelona. We learned a lot, and saw more than we would ever have on our own. The visit to the synagogue was a highlight. Highly recommend!

This experience was fantastic. Adi is extremely passionate about Jewish history in Barcelona. Unlike many other tours, I felt like a close friend or family member was showing me the area. I highly recommend this experience.

Прогулка с Ади — больше, чем просто рассказ об истории евреев в Барселоне. Это ещё множество секретных мест, о которых вы даже не догадаетесь! Мы крайне редко закалываем экскурсии, но эта, безусловно, превзошла наши ожидания!
