Ladino

Discover Sephardic culture through Ladino, an archaic form of Spanish which is actually an explosion of cultures: Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic, Turkish, Greek, French, Bulgarian, and Italian!

Take part in Ladino and open a window to the very essence of the Mediterranean and its cultures.

 

Our local Ladino specialist will open wide a window for you to the very essence of the Mediterranean and its cultures. You will have a peek into Medieval Spain, as Ladino mothers have preserved many Iberian medieval folk songs and ballades and the language itself preserves many archaic features. Learn a Ladino ballad with us and perhaps you too can experience something incredibly precious.
