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.
Reblogging the first post that initiated this idea and project. The University is Outdoors.
Learning moments and activities outside the classroom. Resources for outdoors learners. The university is outdoors. This is our latest project based on many teachable moments found during our trips and outdoors activities. We want to share what the communities are doing to teach their citizens about the environment, energy, information systems, and technologies. Jun 30, 2014.
“Mexico Lindo!” – Memories
“Magic” is the word that come to mind when thinking of this country. During a visit of a few days I was fascinated by the warmth and kindness of the people, by the value given to history and (diverse) culture, by the constant presence of music, by the lively colors, by the tight connection between humans and nature, by the many myths and legends… Life pulsing in each corner, in each square, in each landscape. – João Armando Gonçalves
