There is no place in the world where you won’t be able to find a Jewish community. Portugal is a good example for that, in spite of the fact that Sephardic Heritage in Portugal is known to very few people. Sephardi Jews are the descendants of Portuguese-Spanish Jews, who used to live on the Iberian Peninsula before they were exiled from there due to the Alhambra Decree. As the matter of fact the Jewish Sephardic community was flourishing up till the 15th century, but unfortunately the expulsion of Jews from Spain had a bad impact on the community.
This tour lasts for a week and is almost as popular as any of the private tours in Lisbon. You will definitely enjoy the tour, especially if you are interested in history or have Jewish roots. This way you will have an opportunity to learn the history of the Jewish people in Portugal and the events that made it possible to establish the Cripto-Jewish communities. As your private guide in Lisbon I will help you uncover one of the most intriguing secrets of Portugal – the secret of Sephardic Jews on the Iberian Peninsula. The tour is available for English and French-speaking tourists. You are welcome to bring your friends and member of your families to form a group of a maximum 7 people.
The price of the tour includes the service of a professional private guide during the whole tour, transportation, comfortable lodging with breakfast and dinner and of course the tickets to all the monuments we are going to visit.
