More than a few of Spain's local authorities are ready and willing to
allot funds for the restoration of the country's Jewish past. Spain
has seen a consistent rise in the number of Jewish and Israeli
visitors in recent years- Israeli tourists have increased their
spending in Barcelona by a factor of four. The Barcelona city
government is taking the numbers seriously and trying to bring even
more Israelis to the city, as well as Jewish tourists from other
countries, through exhibitions and restoring sites of interest.
