Great article about Sepharad. But will be perfect with a little info about the ” xuetes of Mallorca”.
A collective that preserved in its genetic 100% semitic origins.

Thank you, Miguel! The xuetes of Majorca are indeed a fascinating story. Because of space constraints our writer had to limit himself to the highest-profile destinations with the greatest numbers of remaining Sephardic monuments. In upcoming posts on the Balearic Islands, however, we look forward to covering their Jewish heritage, as well.

Excellent piece and great to see Jewish Spain getting more coverage. We love these sites and arrange trips for many returning Sephardis to Spain and Portugal. The locations, and the music and cuisine is often overlooked by visitors to Spain. Lovely to see them getting some well-deserved attention. NB The dates for the International Sephardi Music Festival (mentioned above) http://ow.ly/xb5Ui are the 9-14 June – a great event!
