Another three inns in the City of Tomar

Since I have been showing a few hotels and inns in Tomar, here are a new set of photos of another three places that tourists use for an holiday in Tomar. The first photo is of Residencial Sinagoga at Rua Gil Avô, which is the same street the Synagogue of Tomar in located. The second shot is from Pensão Luanda which took the name of the City of Luanda, the Capital of Angola. This inn is also a restaurant and it’s near Varzea Pequena at Rua Marquês de Tomar. The third picture is from Residencial Trovador at Rua 10 de Agosto, close to the Railway Station of Tomar.

Residêncial Sinagoga is located at Rua Gil Avô, which is the same street of the Sinagoga of Tomar, a temple of worship for the Portuguese Jewish community in Tomar

Pensão Luanda took the name of the Capital of Angola. I believe the owners came from that former Portuguese colony. As you can see, this photo was shot at night

    Hmm, mention of inns and churches and chapels, did I miss a reference to the actual sinagoga in Sinagoga street or did you think it might be better not to mention this only remaining sinagoga in this state of preservation in Portugal from the 14th century? The only other one but architecturally inferior being at Castello de Vide.

    Please don’t hide Portugal’s important past before 1496 and remember that Tomar was one of the few places that to our knowledge had two sinagogas. (see my reference to the Igreja de São João Batitsta.)

  2. This is one of the things that I am upset with myself Brian. When I left Portugal 23 years ago, at the time I didn’t hear much about the Synagogue of Tomar and in 2010 I was so concentrated on the Christian monuments that I missed this very important temple. Back in Australia, I had to make some research about my home town and it was then that I realized the great historical importance of the Synagogue of Tomar. I also missed a lot of other things, among them the chapel of Santa Iria, but the Synagogue is the thing that interests me the most now. I’ll be back to Portugal, possibly next year and my priority will be the Synagogue. I will open a new category in my site for that purpose.
