Located in coastal North Portugal, where the Douro River meets the Atlantic Ocean, Porto is the city that gave the country (and port wine) its name. It is a merchant city with an economy based on water-related activities. The old harbor, by Douro’s riverfront, developed into the most picturesque neighborhood, Ribeira. Inside the old medieval wall, there is a labyrinth of narrow granite streets, tall houses covered in tiles of bright colors, clothes drying from balconies, and boats waiting for passengers. It is an underrated foodie city surrounded by vineyards and port cellars. Porto is Portugal’s second-largest metropolis, after Lisbon. It is a UNESCO World Heritage city and has been chosen Best European Destination. The people, history, legends, tradition, culture, scenic views, and world-famous Port wine, will inspire you to want to get to know what is still a fabulous “hidden gem”. On this one-hour walking tour, we will stroll through the old neighborhoods of the Portuguese Sephardic Jews. As we walk through, we will learn about what an intricate part of the medieval merchant and business community this population was. We will also learn how the Jewish population was caught off guard in 1496, by the Expulsion Law of King Manuel I, which forced them to convert or be expelled. Along the way, we will walk through what were some of the old neighborhoods of the ancient Portuguese Sephardic Jews, turned into burrows of “New Christians” and talk about the development of this community in the city, and the country, up to our days. $79 for each additional screen (does not apply to corporate customers.) * This tour is not designed for our corporate customers.
