Our local/guide will take you to all the places where the Jewish community lived, pointing out the toponymic and archeological trace elements that have endured to our days. The Porto Jewish Tour also covers information about the “Inquisition”, the persecution to the “new Christians”, the cover up of the Jewish traditions for centuries and the glorious cultural and religious rescue of Barros Basto – the Portuguese Dreyfus.

The Porto Jewish Museum, that occupies the first floor of the synagogue, was opened in July of 2015 and intend to present the culture and history of the Jewish religion and to highlight the history of the Jewish community in the city of Porto from the medieval times to today.
