As longstanding dedicated members of the Jewish community in Lisbon, we will best be able to help you discover and explore so much more than the regular tourist guides.

Become captivated by the fact that already in the fourth and fifth century, we find the historical remains of a Jewish presence in Portugal, that is to say, well before the formation of the Kingdom of Portugal itself, which only came to be in the twelfth century, and still today we can find traces of the first Jewish communities in Lisbon from this period.

During this walk of discovery, the true Jewish past of the city of Lisbon comes to life.

We follow a route that is less frequented by tourists, picking up historical gems along the way

Our journey has a perfect rhythm, with a delightful balance between history and several anecdotes;

you will discover not only the Jewish past of Lisbon but also be captivated by the most beautiful views of the city, known only to our experienced guides.

Our tour will take you from the first expulsion of the Jews of Portugal by the Visigoths, to the present day, passing through the time period of the terrible fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, and the Portuguese inquisition.

We will also show you the history of the incredible and mostly unknown role of the Jewish Community of Lisbon during the Second World War.

This tour also allows you to visit and explore the most beautiful districts of Lisbon: Bairro Alto, Baixa, Carmo, Chiado, Principe Real, Rato, Rossio, and many more...

This is an ideal first introduction the Portuguese capital, so come and discover the authentic and unknown Jewish Lisbon with us..
