"At times obscured by the pre-eminence of Christians and Muslims, the Jewish presence in our country was extremely fruitful."

The word Sephardic derives from Sepharad, the name that the Jews of the past gave to the Spanish territory. After their expulsion by the Catholic Monarchs in 1492, the diaspora of Sephardic Jews took them to far-flung parts of the world, but they never lost the memory of their country of origin. The synagogues and Jewish neighbourhoods, the mediaeval towns which were home to the Jewish peoples are the most important material remains that have been handed down to us today. Their intangible heritage includes particularly their intellectual curiosity, which was perfectly exemplified by the famous School of Translators of the time in Toledo.
