The story that I am going to tell you in this tour is a story of love, betrayals and judgments of the Holy Inquisition in the purest style of Romeo and Julieta's work. The guide will tell its history reincarnated in a Jewish Jew, referring to the famous work of Shakespeare 'Romeo and Julieta' since her story is very similar to it. Subsequently, we will move to the old synagogue where the story of how his last name was born, and the Catholic Monarchs, Isabel and Fernando have a lot to do with it, we will talk about Abraham Seneor. Next, we will enter through the oldest medieval door in all of Tui, where we will stop to observe it, and as the inquisitors entered through it to capture their grandmother Antonia Sarabia. We will walk the walk that will take us to a business - Jewish house, here we will talk about the parts of which a Jewish house is composed, as well as that they did the same so as not to be the object of punishment by the Inquisition and go completely unnoticed. What the predicants of this religion had to suffer throughout their lives, because completely everyday rites and foods had to leave them completely aside to be accepted in society. We will continue our path, observing the Miño River, a panoramic view that must be photographed in the memory of each one because it witnessed the expulsion of this religion of Tudenses lands. We will stop to explain how they crossed Portugal, as they lived quietly until the Holy Inquisition also arrived. And between history and history we arrive at the prison where we will talk about why it was built and for whom, its ancestor Juan Coronel has a lot to do, because he had direct contact with Rome, imagine that the one who got out, and here Teresa Colonel was It will fill with value to criticize and mention inquisitors and high social class that were also converts and did not get their judgment. We continue our path in silence, because we are serving a sentence and we arrive at the cathedral where we will talk about the Sambenito, as well as how to differentiate them, and what the old Christians were invented based on envy of all new Christians, a full story of horrors. Our final brooch will be at the main entrance of the Church under a Gothic vault and just behind all the figures that make up its majestic entrance that of course will have its presentation, once there, we will talk about how the old Christians could not against The enemy and joined him in a very cunning way and is a gain game - he wins less for the bride and groom, marriages of convenience, but no, this is not the story of Teresa Colonel, this is the story of the rest of the Jews that unfortunately they had to live the terrible and black history of the Holy Inquisition.
