Greet your guide at Praça do Comércio, the ornamental space located near Lisbon’s waterfront. As you amble to your first destination, your private guide provides a historical overview of Lisbon’s Jewish community.
Stop first at a small Jewish ghetto and hear tales of residents past and present. Then, proceed to Alfama — the oldest district in Portugal’s capital — and explore what was one of the largest Jewish ghettos to exist in Europe.
See, too, a Jewish cemetery and gain insight into the integral role the Jewish community continue to play in the city’s development. Your tour concludes in Alfama, where your guide offers recommendations for further exploration.
