During this guided tour I will walk you through the memories of Jewish Coimbra.
The first signs of the Jewish presence in Coimbra date back to the 10th Century, signaled by the transaction of land properties in a nearby village. We know that later, during the rule of D. Afonso Henriques, some guarantees and lands were granted to this community, which expanded through all the Portuguese territory up to the 16th century.
More than just buildings or material testimonies of the Jewish presence, this is a tour about the rich history and culture of this community.
