The Moorish Legacy

With their invasion in 711 A.D., almost the entire Iberian Peninsula fell under Moorish control. During the subsequent centuries, the Christians from their stronghold in the northernmost province of Asturias, slowly began to win back the lost territory, until in the mid-13th century only the area that today coincides with Andalusia remained in the hands of the Moors.

Cordoba, famous for its Mezquita or mosque, was in the 10th century a city of almost a million people, many of whom came from Damascus. The splendid heritage they left behind in Cordoba is to be found at each and every corner.

Seville, with its Giralda or golden tower, was an important city to the Almohades, an ancient Berber tribe of northern Africa, whose empire stretched into Spain to the northern limits of Andalusia.

Granada, the ultimate stronghold of the Moors on the peninsula, fell to the Catholic Kings in 1492. It has superbly conserved Arabic buildings such as the famous palace of  Alhambra, where, tradition has it, Boabdil (the last king of the  Nasrid tribe in Spain) shed tears at the loss of his empire.

Sepharad: the Jewish Experience in Spain

Since the beginning of its history, the Iberian Peninsula has been invaded by a succession of peoples such as the Greeks, Romans, Carthaginians, etc.

The first Jews are believed to have arrived at the same time as the Romans between the 2nd century B.C and the 2nd century A.C and gradually began to be assimilated into the society of the time.

With the Moorish invasion, the Jewish culture in Spain reached its height of splendour. During this period, Jews, Arabs and Christians alike lived peacefully in principal cities such as Toledo, Segovia, Caceres, Tudela, Cordoba and Gerona; many of these cities still preserve their Jewish District, Synagogues, etc.

The Sephardic Museum of Toledo is located in a 12th century building and has one of the most important collections of the Jewish culture of Spain.
