Overview
Our Jewish heritage tours in Porto are a balance between getting to know the Jewish history of the city while discovering the most important monuments of the city. Therefore, even if you are not Jewish this tour is a good way for you to get to know Porto.  Highlights of this tour • Get to know how the Jewish community of Porto was born and how it developed throughout time • Go on a quest for the lost medieval synagogue of Porto, diving yourself on the forgotten Jewish neighbourhood • Discover the secret medieval streets of Porto: this is where the city was founded, and where the first Jewish neighbourhood of Porto existed! • Learn about the life of the founder of the contemporary Jewish community • Understand how Porto and its inhabitants behaved during the Inquisition • Finish the Jewish heritage tour with a tasting of a kosher drink (we can’t tell you which one – it will be a surprise!)

Sara is a self-confessed "nerd" when it comes to history. She also speaks excellent English and does in-depth research. On this tour, you'll follow her through areas of four Jewish settlements in Porto from the 13th century to the present day. Sara's description of the

I’m old enough to remember the old phone company slogan, “the next best thing to being there.” That aptly describes the virtual Jewish Heritage tour of Porto. I’d actually walked some of these streets on earlier visits to Porto, but now, thanks to Sara, I understand what I saw.
