JEWISH Avila

X

Despite claiming the title of having the most Roman and Gothic churches per capita in Spain, Avila's Jewish presence documents as far back as the 12th century. But, according to myth Jews were among the founders of the city. The great Basilica of San Vicente is believed to have been built by a Jew in the 4th century. Since then the Jews had a strong presence in Avila - as known artisans and members of the king's court. Visit Avila to get your fill of amazing architecture or come during the Holy Week festival to see amazing art and the procession of Christian fraternities. Famous personalities: Moses of Leon (1240-1305)

#JEWISHAVILA

Take a break from the bustle and hip attitude that oozes from the streets of Berlin. Find a quiet space - just past the Brandenberg Gate - in the Holocaust Memorial. You may see young kids jumping from one pillar to the next, while other people sit in solitude and memory. The memorial has faced countless criticism for being too vague an ode to those whose suffered and, conversely, for demonizing Germany. What do you think? Was this an appropriate way to pay respects to victims of the Holocaust? #wjt #jewishberlin #bardenberg #holocaust #holocaustmemorial #berlin #eastsidegallery #travel ** ** ** Repost @justintheroux ...
