The Jews of Tomar

Built between 1430 and 1460 by Infante D. Henrique, the Tomar synagogue represents the Jewish community's considerable importance in this city since the 14th century. Firstly in service to Temple Order, after for the Order of Christ.

Our Jewish Heritage tour begins at Tomar synagogue, one of the oldest in the country. After centuries of being defiled, it was recovered by Polish engineer Samuel Schwarz in the 1st 20th century half. This building is in the old medieval Jewry. Meanwhile, archaeological excavations discovered water heating structures and carvings, proving the existence of areas for purifying baths.

Tomar Jewish tour continues at Praça da República where we take an opportunity to appreciate São João Batista Church Manueline façade. These old building windows are a postcard to this city beside the Nabão River.

Now our tour is at Templar Castle and Convent, Temple Order headquarters. Its architectural beauty, emphasizing octagonal Charola (late 12th century) and Manueline window, has classified it as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We finish this tour at the Convent of Christ. Thank you for visiting Tomar Jewish Heritage.
