"The traveller cupped his hands and drank, and went to the Jewish quarter. There the streets mount the steep slopes where the synagogue once stood, with all its little winding steps, its corners and patio walks. The Jewish and Arçário quarters are of an incomparable rustic beauty. Their gateways have been preserved with a love and respect that move the traveller. Their stones are stones of earlier centuries, some dating back to the fourteenth century which previous generations came to love and protect. The traveller's close to believing what's written in Castelo de Vide's chronicles and with testimonial acknowledgement: 'And I leave to my sons a doorway to be kept undivided within the family.' " - Jose Saramago - Journey To Portugal
