A visit to the north of the country is like traveling back in time. The north is a legendary source for stories and tales, with many antique and beautifully preserved castles that survived since the Middle-Ages and give out a fairy-tale atmosphere, while we travel back in time into the historical past.
In the green pastures of the north, some of the best wines in Portugal are produced, and each village specifies in its unique gastronomical cuisine.
Central Portugal is an area with contrasting beauties; mountain peaks that almost touch the sky and a coastline dotted with marvelous cities and villages.
The city of Coimbra, at the heart of Portugal, has served as the capital of Portugal during the Middle-Ages. However, the city earned its fame for being the place where Europe's first university was founded in the year 1290. The university exists until this day, and boasts one of the most splendid and extensive libraries in Europe.
In our excursions to Central Portugal, you will discover amazing wine routes, lush pine-tree forests and wonderful beaches.
Many songs have been written about Lisbon, the capital of Portugal and many works of art depict its light and beauty. Ancient quarters, pretty squares and viewpoints, a long promenade along the river, restaurants, bustling markets and unique boutiques – you will not want to miss a thing!
Lisbon's Parque das Nações(Nations' Park) is much more than any park – it is an enormous compound on the riverbank, featuring a long promenade, recreational activities, shopping centers, lawns, a cable car and more. Children will surely enjoy a visit in the Oceanarium – one of the major family attractions in Lisbon.
the Jewry of Portugal
Many Jews live in modern Portugal, but only a few live their lives as practicing Jews. The great Jewish community that existed in the past was devastated during the Expulsion and most Portuguese Jews today live under its shade.
For decades and centuries, there was no Jewish presence in the country. The first Jews returned to Portugal only at the turn of the 19th century, arriving mainly from Morocco, looking for a better life. Nowadays, only 700 Jews live in Portugal, most of them in the capital. It is estimated that many more Portuguese have Jewish origins ("Anusim"), following the forced conversion of most Portuguese Jewry at the end of the 15th century.
The bigger Jewish community is concentrated in the capital, Lisbon. There are also two synagogues; one for Ashkenazi Jews and another for Sephardic Jews. A smaller Jewish community exists in the city of Porto, site of the Kadoorie synagogue.
A visit to Portugal is like traveling back in time, while experiencing stories and adventures with all our senses; old memories and preserved ancient sites will give us the feeling of another world and time.
The is an old Portuguese saying: "Half a word is more than enough for those who understand" – therefore, we'll say no more…
