JEWISH Tortosa

X

One of wealthiest cities in Spain, Tortosa, enclosed by strong walls, prospered through both Roman and Arab rule. For a breathtaking view of the whole city, stop by the castle of La Suda. The old Jewish quarter is a patchwork of various periodic and cultural histories. Interestingly, the Call of Tortosa was established around a former Arab shipyard which had been donated to the community. It's most impressive claim to fame is in the Musuem of Tortosa, which contains a famed trilingual tombstone: engraved in Hebrew, Greek and Latin and belonging to Meliosa, a young Jew, dating the Jewish presence in Tortosa back to the Visigoths era, circa 6th century.
