Besalú, Jewish town
Every year in early March takes place Besalú Jewish town. During this weekend, the town remembers its Jewish heritage elements which are preserved as significant as the synagogue and the Jewish baths or miqvé that are unique throughout the Iberian Peninsula.
We go back in time and we settled in the Middle Ages. You can listen to Sephardic music, do a guided tour or enjoy the local cuisine.
