Enrich your knowledge of Lisbon’s rich Jewish heritage on a private half-day walking tour of Portugal’s capital city. While listening to history-rich commentary from your guide, you’ll visit Lisbon’s charming Jewish Quarter — nicknamed Small Jerusalem — and tour the elaborate tombs of a Jewish cemetery. As you explore Lisbon, you’ll discover the impact that the Jewish community had during the Golden Age. On this private tour, you’ll receive undivided attention from your guide.
Greet your guide at Praça do Comércio, the ornamental space located near Lisbon’s waterfront. As you amble to your first destination, your private guide provides a historical overview of Lisbon’s Jewish community.
Stop first at a small Jewish ghetto and hear tales of residents past and present. Then, proceed to Alfama — the oldest district in Portugal’s capital — and explore what was one of the largest Jewish ghettos to exist in Europe.
See, too, a Jewish cemetery and gain insight into the integral role the Jewish community continue to play in the city’s development. Your tour concludes in Alfama, where your guide offers recommendations for further exploration.
