Welcome to the Belmonte Jewish Community

In Belmonte, a Jewish community has been referenced since the thirteenth century, witnessed by the finding of an epigraph belonging to a primitive Synagogue, which dates back to 1297, but the presence of Jews in the village was not an isolated incident, with knowledge of the existence of other Jewish women in the cities, towns and villages of the region.

Belmonte is, perhaps, the Portuguese town with the strongest Jewish presence and it stands out because it was a unique case, within the Iberian Peninsula, where Hebrew culture and tradition have lasted since the early 16th century until today.
