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 ✋🏽❤️

In the end the flag was won “on the ground” by the “trainera” from Hondarribia, when the “trainera” of Urdaibai, winner of the two rounds, was disqualified for having entered the route of Hondarribia and having touched the oars of both “traineras”, a very controversial decision with a lot of controversy

EVENT: Nov 19 – 9am Local Time – Vuelta a Barcelona [ESP] | @VamosPedaleando


[ESP] ¡Hola! Soy Edu 👋🏽👨🏻

Hace 5 meses salí de Barcelona con el objetivo de darle la vuelta a la península Ibérica en bicicleta.

Y hace 5 años llegué a España y visité Sitges por primera vez. Deseando algún día poder pedalear la carretera antigua que se ubica en la conocida Costa de Garraf.

Por eso mismo es que he decidido cerrar el circulo y cumplir mi objetivo justamente por esa carretera que siempre he querido pedalear.

Me gustaría invitarte a que me acompañes en este día que para mi es sumamente importante. Si te gusta montar bici, si te gusta pedalear,te invito y te pido que por favor me acompañes en este día tan especial.

El plan es salir de Sitges el Domingo 19/11 a las 9 de la mañana y llegar a Barcelona a medido día. Una vez llegados a la ciudad Condal, nos reuniremos para celebrar la vuelta. El plan es hacer una parrilla, tomar cervecitas/vino/alcohol y compartir una tarde de Domingo diferente y con gente que comparte el amor por pedalear.
(Cada quien paga lo que consume)(aunque me gustaría poder invitar 😂)

El camino suele ser de 2hrs45min pero cuenta que yo llevo 50+ kilos encima. 🤣

Espero que te animes a acompañarme y si conoces a alguien que le gusta la bici y vive en Barcelona, compartele el evento, seguro que se anima.

😃 ¡Gracias!


Hello! I’m Edu 👋🏽👨🏻 Five months ago I left Barcelona with the aim of cycling around the Iberian Peninsula. And 5 years ago I arrived in Spain and visited Sitges for the first time. Desiring to one day be able to pedal the old road that is located in the well known Costa de Garraf.

That is why I have decided to close the circle and fulfill my goal just for that road that I have always wanted to pedal. I would like to invite you to join me on this day that is very important to me. If you like to ride a bike, if you like to pedal, I invite you and I ask you to please accompany me on this special day.

The plan is to leave Sitges on Sunday 11/19 at 9 in the morning and arrive in Barcelona at noon. Once we arrive in Barcelona, ​​we will meet to celebrate the return. The plan is to make a grill, drink beers / wine / alcohol and share a different Sunday afternoon with people who share the love of pedaling. (Everyone pays what they consume) (although I would like to invite 😂) The road is usually 2hrs 45min but it counts that I have 50+ kilos on top. 🤣 I hope that you accompany me and if you know someone who likes to bike and lives in Barcelona, ​​share the event with them, I am sure that they will be encouraged. 😃 Thank you! 🙏🏽
