The Jewish presence on the peninsula may have originated from the Exodus, and although its history is marked by violence and injustice, its long presence has shaped Portuguese culture, traditions and even the Portuguese language.

There is almost nothing tangible to see, but there is an immense story to be revealed. The Inquisition deliberately erased as much as possible of Sephardic Jewish culture, and what remained was later destroyed by the fury of the 1755 earthquake.

During the tour you will explore the old Jewish quarters and the prisons of the Inquisition and discover exciting places and stories that your guide will show and tell you. Immerse yourself in another world and find out what is behind the facades

Get to know historical figures, traditions and even the Jewish presence of modern times in Portugal and its unique case the Belmonte community and the history of the IIWW refugees in Lisbon.
