St. Domingos’ Church

There’s a memorial which records the attack in 1506 which many fanatics promoted against the New Christians, victimizing thousands.

It’s the main synagogue of the Israelite Community of Lisbon. The community has its origins in the nineteenth century, in families from North Africa.
