A relaxed and unhurried walk through the essentials that you should not miss from our city like Palace of Carvajal and Becerra Palace. Once we enter the Jewish Quarter, you will see how the city changes. Instead of wide squares, narrow alleys; instead of tall towers, low houses; Instead of stately ashlars, brick or plastered ashlar, as is typical in Extremaduran popular houses. This hidden corner has preserved all the flavor of what became one of the largest aljamas in the kingdom of Castile in the s. XV. We will be able to see what was its synagogue, Christianized like the hermitage of San Antonio that gives its name to the neighborhood, as well as the material remains of a persecuted culture whose customs, traditions and way of understanding existence have remained rooted among us until today. The Jewish quarter of Cáceres belongs to the Caminos de Sefarad network of Jewish quarters in Spain, which groups together the best-preserved Jewish quarters of the Iberian Peninsula. This network has given some of us specific training through the RASGO project to specialize in interpreting this unique place without which it would be difficult to understand the history of Cáceres.
