Jewish Portugal

The contribution of the Portuguese Jews in world’s history was enormous; from the nautical science that more than 500 years ago gave a breakthrough to the onset of globalization, to the evolution of world economy and medicine, many were the areas where the role of Sephardic Jews has become more prevalent.

The Portuguese Network of Jewish Quarters – Routes of Sepharad is an association with public character but of private law and is intended to act together in defense of the urban, architectural, environmental, historical and cultural heritage related to the Jewish heritage.

Thus, the Portuguese Network of Jewish Quarters, founded in March 17th 2011, intends to combine the historical and heritage recovery with tourism promotion, action that will also help to discover a strong Portuguese and mainland identity.
