‪Very nice area of Hervás, Extremadura. Worth a nice, relaxed walk around and finish with a tapa and caña.‬

‪You have to use your imagination because there isn’t anything left of the Jewish life there, maybe a little wall. ‬

‪A very interesting visit to the medieval ghetto (judería) in Hervás‬
ספט׳ 2018
‪the Hervás ghetto is worth traveling to visit calmly. The medieval city of Hervás, in a magnificent valley with a warm microclimate, was founded by Knights Templar and immediately a small Jewish community was created that was growing for two centuries, until its expulsion in 1492. Many of the Jewish families were converted and it is easy to follow its history after that date, but also many families left the city and went to Portugal and left their houses in Hervás.
the Jewish quarter was in the northwest part of the town, and remained - as was the norm in the Castilian kingdoms - next to the castle of the city. Nowadays the castle -which was at the top- no longer exists because it was destroyed in the 16th century, and the church of Santa María, which occupies the most outstanding part of the city, was built in its place in the 17th century. But in its origin, the city of Hervás and its Jewish quarter always looked at the castle -the Lord of Béjar- that presided over the life of the city.
The Jewish population was rich and active, and lived on agriculture, commerce and various trades such as cobbler, tanner, etc. From what I have read, life in Hervás of the Jews was fairly quiet, until the expulsion; at least, in the city they did not have some horrible customs that there were against the Jews in other towns like Toledo ...
The streets of the Jewish quarter keep the disposition and traditions of its origin. The names of the streets (the one of the Synagogue, the one of the Rabilero - where the Rabbi lived) are conserved and the names of the families families that lived in them are known (the one of the Coen, for example) ... But the place where the Synagogue was, it no longer has this building, and is now occupied by a house and service buildings of a normal family. But you get a perfect idea with the fountains, the magnificent orchards, etc. of how life was there.
There are some families of Israelis (or Jews) who have returned in recent years, and have put businesses (rural houses, typical tahonas) very well managed for tourism and visits to this neighborhood and this wonderful Jewish quarter. Everything is very well maintained, clean , and you can see the love of those who live in this Jewish quarter. We are left wanting to buy one of those small houses and go to live seasonally to this wonderful place.‬

‪Not well marked, it is hard to know what you are looking at.‬
יולי 2017 • זוגות
‪Hervas is a pretty little city. But the Jewish neighbourhood is not marked well to let you know what you are seeing. While the arquitecture is interesting, it isn't all that much different than other cities in the area and so a visitor is left to wonder what makes it extra special.‬

‪On the backside of Hervas, the Jewish quarter consists of quite a few narrow streets with some shops, restaurants and bars, but not too many. Most houses are well conserved, some with lots of flowers. You get a taste of village life as it was a few centuries ago. An absolute must if in Hervás!‬

‪SE PUEDE TOCAR EL PASADO PASEANDO POR HERVÁS.‬
פבר׳ 2017 • זוגות
‪Hervás en una pequeña población extremeña que cuenta con un barrio de intenso pasado hebreo. Todas sus estrechas y angostas calles rotuladas con estrellas de David y con nombres y edificaciones que evocan su pasado judío, me resultó de lo más interesante por sus calles medievales con tiendas que ofrecían todo tipo de recuerdos e incluso alimentos de origen judío. Me encantó.

Hervás is a small village situated in Extremadura, in the middle Western of Spain. this ancient Spanish town features of a vintage Jewish quarter full of history. It was in 1492 when the Jewish comunity was expelled from Spain by the Spanish Catholic Kings and Hervás was not a exception. You can find in this place many things, such as streets, hotels and even food recipes related with Jewish names and with their community as well. I love this place.‬
