JEWISH Caceres

X

Caceres is a charming town known for its national park, stately homes, and ability to preserve itself through history. These qualities sure make it worth a visit to this historical city. Fascinatingly, the city is an early example of religious coexistence; Caceres was populated by Jews, Moors, and Christians in the 11th century, although it is likely that Jews settled there during the Muslim rule a century earlier. Stop by the Old Jewish Call and observe the one-storey houses in all of their chaotic glory stacked on top of one another, and the Plaza Mayor, where Jews sold their wares and crafts. The nearby Caceres Museum offers a wealth of information, and for the more eagle eyed tourist, just around the corner at number 30 Barrio de San Antonio de la Quedabra Street is a street sign recalling the city's past Jewish population with two stars of David.

#JEWISHCACERES

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 ...
