DESCRIPTION

Jewish Lisbon Tour

Experience the rich history of Lisbon like never before with the Jewish Lisbon Tour. This tour takes you on a journey through the heart of the city, exploring traditional neighborhoods like Alfama, Baixa, and Chiado. These areas hold a special connection to the history of Jews in Lisbon, making it a unique and insightful experience.

Throughout history, the Jewish community in Lisbon faced a complex interplay of acceptance and rejection. Their story is one of resilience, ingenuity, and entrepreneurship. They actively contributed to the development of agriculture, finance, medicine, and even played a role in the Portuguese discoveries of the 16th century. The Jews who converted to Catholicism during challenging times left an indelible mark on how we perceive religions and the dynamics of acceptance and rejection in society.

This tour offers you a window into the influential Jewish community that once thrived in Portugal. Even after their expulsion in the 16th century, their influence spread to countries like England, Holland, and the United States. Join us on the Jewish Lisbon Tour to discover the enduring impact of this remarkable community on the world stage.
