Why Visit the Iberian Peninsula on a Jewish Travel Vacation?

by Kosher River Cruise Kosher Tour Operator
As the world slowly returned to normalcy, many of us at home have had a long time to think about our plans. As we all try to reel from the effects of last year, many of us have been yearning for a chance to stretch our legs and explore the earth that was long cut off from us. Once our global circumstances improve and we can be free to bask in the sunshine of different parts of the world, you’ll be sure to find us busy adventuring and revitalizing our sense of wonder. Once it’s safe again, we can go on Jewish travels freely. 

However, the long months may have made us forget which parts of the world that we want to visit. Was it Amsterdam, or Mainland Southeast Asia? While those are splendid options for a Jewish vacation, one locale in Europe is a must-visit for Jewish travelers looking for a cultural experience: The Iberian Peninsula. What can you find in the Iberian Peninsula? 

Iberian Peninsula

History

The Iberian Peninsula comprises Spain and Portugal, a pair of nations rich in beautiful architecture, fascinating culture, and storied conflicts and historic events worth reading about. While the castles of other parts of Europe are iconic locales for any European adventure, the beautiful forts and citadels of Spain and Portugal must be seen to be believed. 

Heritage

Spain and Portugal also have a rich, if somewhat complicated history with the Jewish people. From the Visigoths of the Middle Ages to the Muslim conquerors of the Golden Age, the Jewish heritage of Iberia has had its ups and downs. However, what does endure is the tangible artistry and scholarship of the many Jewish thinkers and writers of Iberia, such as Maimonides. 

Where do I Start?

There are plenty of ways to begin your exciting visit to the Iberian Peninsula. One such method is aboard a kosher cruise. Iberia has plenty of magnificent waterways, but one of the best rivers for such a heritage cruise is the Douro River of the Douro Valley region in Portugal. Imagine savoring kosher port wine and bask in a beautiful clime on a Douro cruise one day. If you're interested in such a future vacation, visit us at Kosher River Cruises.
