The Portuguese capital is, since the 12th Century, the peninsular Sephardic city where, probably, most part of the history is concentrated. As during the time of the Jews, as during the time of New Christians, Lisbon has always been part of the Jewish history.
An old Jewish Quarter
There’s a memorial which records the attack in 1506 which many fanatics promoted against the New Christians, victimizing thousands.
