Join the Museum of Jewish Heritage and Our Travel Circle for a live, virtual walking tour in the beautiful coastal city of Porto, Portugal. Jews have lived in Porto since the 12th century, and the city’s Jewish population was an active part of its business and civic community in medieval times until the Inquisition forced many into conversion or expulsion. With our guide Sara, this walking tour will explore some of the old neighborhoods of the ancient Portuguese Sephardic Jews, turned into the boroughs of converted “New Christians.” We’ll also learn the exciting story of the rejuvenation of Porto’s Jewish community during the last century.
