Stories and legends of the Jews of Castelo Rodrigo
The presence of Jews in Portuguese territory over the centuries gave origin to a cultural heritage, both material and immaterial, which still today arouses the curiosity of visitors.
When the edict expelling the Jews from Spain was posted (1492), most of them (estimated to be over 100,000) moved to Portugal. About 35,000 of these crossed the border of Vilar Formoso, many of them reinforcing the pre-existing communities at Trancoso, Belmonte, Castelo Rodrigo, and Bragança, among others. Despite the great weight of the clerical power, it was in small villages, such as those of Beira Interior, that the Portuguese Jews managed to live a life with less upheaval, at least until the date of King Manuel I’s edict of expulsion, in 1496.
