Jewish history in Portugal

Portugal Jewish history was about to be transformed! Until their expulsion in 1496, Jews in Portugal had been an integrated value for portuguese culture. As a result Catholic Monarchs gave them two choices; leave or convert. Rich or poor jews were made equal and forced to either adopt Catholic tradition or find a new home. With this most of Portugal Jewish communities were ended as well chances to be a jew.

Consequently most travelled over North Europe and America; others travelled to Constantinople, Netherlands, Brasil, United States, or Greece. As a result they left behind their possessions, property, their beloved towns, cities and villages.
