Gibraltar – Full Day Walking Tour


SKU: Gib-2 Categories: ,

Morning Itinerary

Consists of visits to the Synagogues and places of Jewish interest on Parliament Lane, Irish Town, where the wealthy Jewish Merchants used to live.
Also where the Ship chandlers who supplied the Ships who carried the Jews who had fled the Pogroms and had sailed from Odessa, on their way to the United States and later to Argentina, some which still exist and are still functioning.
Then we pass through the juncture between Market Lane and Irish Town, where the kosher meat used to be sold in the 1750’s
From there we come to John Mackintosh Square, which used to be the Auction Square from the 18th to the 20th centuries.
There I will let you know more about what used to occur there.


Lunch can be had at either of the local Kosher restaurants.


Afternoon Itinerary

Next to the Square is the City Hall which was built by our first President of the Jewish Community in 1790
Inside the City Hall there is an Art Exhibition of Gibraltarian Artista amongst which is Jacob Azagury one of the first Gibraltarian Jewish Artists.
From there I will take you to the Gibraltar Exchange-where the Parliament of Gibraltar now meets-built in 1817 and you’ll be able to note the great amount of Jewish Merchants who gave towards the building of the Exchange. At the Exchange there is a memorial to Solomon Benzecry who died as a hero during the First World War.
As I said these sites and others will be visited as we walk from Synagogue to Synagogue.
At each Synagogue I will tell you about the History of the Synagogue and about the Jewish Community, though the ages, here in Gibraltar.

The tour ends back at the main Piazza square.
