  • Other than in Israel, this was the oldest synagogue that I have seen. It is from the 1100's and has been restored beautifully. It is hard to believe that this is almost 900 years old.  more »
  • Beautiful mouldings on the walls, an extraordinarily beautiful ceiling, a pretty piece of garden with contemporary statues and a sound installation that can only be enjoyed if you have the audioguide here for the synagogue and a very small museum that gives some essential information about the history of the community. It's a beautiful place.
