Sefarad (in hebrew, סְפָרַד) es is the biblical name that the Jewish tradition gave to the Iberian Peninsula.
In the current Hebrew language, Sefarad remains the exclusive name that defines the entire territory between Spain and Portugal. It is very possible that Sepharad, was identified with the kingdoms of Castile and Aragon, after the expulsion of the Jews in 1492 and the Sephardic name mentions both those expelled from Spain, as well as those expelled from Portugal in 1497, as well as, to all his descendants.
We highlight that a large part of the Jews expelled from Spain took refuge in Portugal, forced to leave after the edict of Granada.

We invite you to visit the cities where the Jewish people settled and lived in Spain.
In the first chapter we visit the city of Córdoba.
THE JUDERIA OF CORDOBA
It was inside the medina, which in the later Christian era was Collación or Barrio de San Miguel.
Its main artery or main street, passed from the north until ending at the PUERTA DEL OSARIO, which received this name as there were cemeteries along the way.
The Jews freely exercised commerce, being in charge of administering the revenues of the Public Treasury and exercising relevant positions in the court of the Umayyad sovereigns.
The splendor floods it when the Jewish, Muslim and Christian cultures coexist in harmony, peace that was truncated by the invasion of the Christians. After the reconquest of Fernando III in 1236, racial hatred increased until, in 1492, Isabel la Católica ordered the expulsion of the Jews.
