Details

Begin in Lisbon's Rossio Square and where your guide will illustrate how thousands and thousands of Jews tragically met their death during the Middle Ages. Discover how those who refused to convert to Christianity were burnt on bonfires by the Catholic Inquisition. After a break for lunch, visit Lisbon's ancient Jewish neighbourhood. Visit the Shaaré Tikvá Synagogue as well as Lisbon's 19th-century Jewish cemetery. Before completing the tour, view the cemetery's first grave—that of José Amzalaga who, according to his epitaph, died on February 26, 1804.
