Necropolis de los Judios, Segovia.

Jewish cemeteries are normally located outside the walls of the city or castles.

We normally hike to hidden places to find #Sephardic history. We have to come back to#Segovia to search with more time.

Sepharad Chronicles: Back to Spain. Our Quest for Semah de Valencia | Dr. Jose G Lepervanche Valencia

Our Valencia family knew that our ancestors were Sephardic Jews who went from Spain to the Netherlands, Curacao, and Venezuela. Documents from my mother Dilia Valencia Parparcen and my uncle Dr. Joel Valencia Parparcen mentioned how our family settled in Barcelona, Anzoategui State and Porlamar, Nueva Esparta State in the oriental region of Venezuela.

I emigrated to Florida, USA in 1994 and took these documents with me. During many years, cousins shared with others what they knew about our Jewish heritage, transmitted by oral or written methods. 

In 2014 My wife and I went to Spain and arrived to Port Sagunto near Valencia. We went to Sagunto to visit the Jewish Quarter and the Castle of Sagunto. This first encounter with Sepharad was the beginning of our quest to find our family. This is the quest for Semah de Valencia family. This was the motivation to write our Sepharad Chronicles.

Segovia is a historic city northwest of Madrid in central Spain. Its centuries of settlement have resulted in a rich architectural legacy, including medieval walls, Romanesque churches, a former royal palace and a Gothic cathedral. Its iconic ancient Roman aqueduct has more than 160 arches, most in the original mortarless granite, and stands above Plaza Azoguejo in the heart of the city.
