Discover Lisbon and its 3000 years of history, which overflows with influences of Jewish culture. Lisbon’s Jewish community came to develop a unique culture that was the reflection of their total social integration, which was only broken after the Renaissance. Get into the sounds, smells and beauty of Lisbon's ancient alleyways, full of Jewish history. Explore the neighborhoods which was inhabited by the biggest Jewish community in Europe for centuries: Chiado, Baixa and Alfama. Discover why even today you can feel Jewish influences all over the town. Learn why the Jewish community was so important for Portuguese Golden Age of Discoveries and discover more about the Jewish intellectuals, mathematicians and cabalists. Visit the 14th-15th Century Carmo Museum where you will be able to see old Jewish archaeological finds.
