JEWISH TOUR

The history of the Jews in Sarajevo can be traced back over 400 years ago when the first Jews arrived in Sarajevo as early as 1541 via Salonika.  They were mostly artisans, merchants, pharmacists, and doctors.  They built their own quarter, dubbed El Cortijo (the courtyard), in 1577 with permission from the pasha Siavush.  The community built a synagogue in El Cortijo in 1580 with the help of a Turkish benefactor, in a building called Velika Avlija.  By the end of the 16th century, the building where Velika Avlija stood became known as old Jewish Cathedral, Sarajevo’s first synagogue.
