An approach to Lisbon Jewish presence in a Private Tour in a Mercedes Benz


Until 1496 different peoples such as Christians, Moors and Jews were living together in the same city. But from that date onwards the Portuguese king Manuel I expelled all religious minorities that weren't willing to convert to Catholicism. Altough that decision changed the course of history, there are still vestiges of the jewish presence in Lisbon dating back from the 15th century. More recently, in the 20th century, Portugal played a fundamental role when the Jewish fled to the USA during World War 2.
Did you know that the Jewish people until the 15th century had their own district where they could freely practice their religion?
In the second part we will visit Lisbon most important monuments.
This tour will make you understand the Jewish presence in Lisbon, while visiting the city.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jose is a fabulous guide. He made every effort to accommodate our requests including making plans to attend religious services in Lisbon. He was also very careful to make sure I was taken care of since my mobility was not up to normal due to a knee problem. His knowledge of Portuguese history was most welcome since we were hoping to learn as much as we could on the trip. We highly recommend him.
