The Jewish Heritage of Lisbon

The Tour

A walk along the centuries of friendship and quarrels between Lisbon and its Jewish community.

In its 2000 and some years, Lisbon witnessed the arrival of many different peoples, cultures and religions. Some stayed, some left, and some had a tremendous impact on our History!

Join us in search of the places, ways of life and importance of Lisbon’s Jews throughout the centuries. Discover why they were so important for the medieval city and the great adventure of the Portuguese Maritime Discoveries.

From the different Jewish quarters and the shipyards, to the places where tragic events created bad memories, nothing is left behind in this trip to the past and the present of the chosen people.
