Our Jewish Lisbon tours are about the History, customs and traditions of a Jewish past. Get a different glance of it through our Jewish tours in Lisbon.
After the conquest, Christian Lisbon maintained neighbourhoods where mostly people of other religions lived. In addition to the Mouraria (Moors), which still exists today, Lisbon had at least four Jewish quarters. However over the centuries they have lived almost side by side, from the thirteenth to the fifteenth century.
‘ If you want the present to be different from the past, study the past’
Our Jewish Lisbon cultural heritage tour is about discovering the iconic places and people of Lisbon from a Jewish perspective. We will share with you in this Jewish Lisbon tour:
In the Middle Ages, Jews played an important role in the administration of the kingdom, in urban evolution and in the commercial business of the city. Lisbon had four Jewish Quarters and many families lived outside the areas assigned to the Jews, a sign of the population dimension that the community reached in the 15th century.
The Jewish presence in Lisbon, shows us that the jewries occupied a privileged area in the city space. Present throughout the kingdom, Jews achieved significant economic, social, fiscal and cultural relevance.
Usually associated with the urban environment, they settled in areas of strong identity. The Jewries or, more simply, the Jewish quarters or Jewish streets. But the area reserved for the Jewish minority in urban Lisbon tended to take on great resemblance. Stemming from similar choices as to its locations and orientations.
Our Jewish Lisbon Heritage tour continues now in Alfama, Lisbon’s oldest quarter was once a Jewish neighborhood. Along, Rua da Judiaria, is still visible where was located the Synagogue as well as the Rabbi house. These are some of the few remains of Alfama Jewish past. Jews have lived in this Lisbon area until it’s expulsion in 1496.
