This modest memorial to a riot against new Christians is easily overlooked. Although the riot occurred in 1506 the inquisition in Portugal contined through the late 17th century. The monument was commemorated on the 500 year annivetsary of the riot.This square was apparently the site...More

We were there in Oct at this simple, moving monument to intolerance, strangely we saw right after the hate crime at a US synagogue in Pittsburgh. The best Ginjinha in town is nearby.

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
