  • The entrance is very expensive (€ 20 per person) to visit three rooms of 20 m² where we see kosher dishes and the Torahs! visit the free Synagogue only!

  • During city walk here inside. Special building. Also it was warm, yet well worth the effort.

  • This is the oldest synagogue in the Western Hemisphere and worth a visit. It smells so wonderful in there, the beautiful tropical wood. Such a great place of worship.  more »
