Hiring a private guide is the best you can do, if visiting Lisbon.
There are hidden secrets, and places to see and discovery, by a lens of a local guide.
The Jewish population of Lisbon is older than the country itself. Portugal was founded back in 1143, but there’s evidence of Jewish Population in the country back from long time ago.
It was back on the year 70 A.D., after the destruction of Jerusalem, that Jewish diaspora sent part of the population to the Iberian Peninsula, Portugal and Spain. Later, during the Spanish Inquisition, thousands of Jewish escaped from Spain and traveled to Portugal. Later, during World War II, thousands of Jewish escapted from Germany and from the war, to Portugal, at least 10.000 through the hands of Aristides Sousa Mendes, the Portuguese Consul.
The History of Lisbon, shows this and much more. There’s a lot to explore and learn.
