The Jewish's Heritage

The Jewish History in Porto is half day walking tour, a discovery of the Jewish heritage, curiosities, families, influences in the economy, and culture in the city.
Guided by specialist in Jewish issues you will be taken, in chronological order, through three of the four Jewish quarters that existed in Porto, up to the time of King Manuel the 1st edict of expulsion in 1496.
