Jewish Tour of Lisbon
Our private Jewish sightseeing tour takes you to three of the four old Jewish quarters in Lisbon. We start out in the Alfama Jewish quarter the most ancient and traditional neighborhood in all of Lisbon.
From there, we head to the heart of Lisbon, where we will see many shops, cafes, and artists. We walk on one of the most beautiful streets in Lisbon – Augusta Street. And see Rossio Square, with its famous Theater D. Maria II, previously known as the Palace of Estaus – the Inquistion Headquarters. Here you will visit the Jewish Memorial, known as Largo de Sao Domingos. This memorial to the victims of the 1506 Jewish Massacre was erected on April 19, 2006. Then, we will enjoy Lisbon’s official drink, a ginjinha, a cherry liquer.
Our afternoon begins with a tour of the Lisbon Synagogue, Shaare Tikva (opened in 1904). This was the first synagogue to be built since the destruction of Portuguese Jewry in 1497, and the only synagogue left in Lisbon. We are now in the third and final Jewish quarter on our tour. The Judiaria da Pedreira, located in the Largo do Carmo Square in the Barrio Alto. The narrow streets and lively squares of the Barrio Alto make it one of Lisbon’s most famous neighborhoods.
Next, it’s off to the Belem quarter to visit the Jeronimos Monastery, Belem Tower, and the Monument to the Discoveries.
Our day ends with an internationally known delicacy – the “pastel de Belem,” Lisbon’s delicious custard pastry. And our thanks for visiting Jewish Lisbon.Jewish Tours in Lisbon
