Segovia

SEGOVIA PUERTA DEL SOLClosed by seven gates as from 1481, the Jewish quarter of Segovia comprises a space which is totally delimited on the southern side of the walled city, a district now made up of the remains of synagogues, palaces, museums and buildings which evoke its Jewish past, distributed amongst a set of streets rife with medieval mystery. A walk through the Jewish quarter – revealing a city quite distinct from that of the conventional routes through Segovia of the Aqueduct and the Citadel – is further complemented by a visit to the Jewish cemetery of Pinarillo on the other side of Clamores stream where there are some remains of burials which are of great value.
