Jewish Lisbon: Lisbon’s Jewish heritage goes back to the beginnings of the city foundation.

With three thousand years of history, Lisbon overflows with influences of Sephardic presence.

Jews in Lisbon came to develop a unique identity and were part of a sophisticated society of intellectuals, mathematicians and cabalists, during the Renaissance.

The tour will start at the most perfect viewpoint to observe and comprehend the city. You will be able to see, from the top of one of the highest hills, the old neighborhoods, the astonishing monuments and the stunning bright colors of Lisbon. You will understand the city evolution and the dimension of its Jewish quarters.

Visit the second oldest district in Europe and discover the physical signs of Jewish presence.

Departure toward the place where once existed “Small Jerusalem”, the biggest Jewish quarter in Europe, that was completely devastated by the earthquake of 1755, but where it’s still possible to recognize its rich History.

Visit the place where once existed the smallest Jewish quarter and let yourself be taken by ancient memories.

Departure toward Chiado and discover the stories of the most influent Jewish families of Portuguese Kingdom.

On Rossio Square we will get you to know everything about Portuguese Inquisition, its way of operating and will tell about the events that justified the setting of a Jewish Memorial, in front of one of the most significant places in the Jewish Portuguese History.

During the tour, we will also tell you about how Crypto Judaism became part of Portuguese Jews identity.

At the end of the tour, you will visit the Lisbon Museum (the Palácio Pimenta, where we invite you to see the spectacular scale model of Lisbon before the earthquake of 1755).
