Visit the oldest standing synagogue in the Americas, Mikve Israel-Emanuel Synagogue. The community can trace its roots to the 1650s, when Spanish and Portuguese Jews who had been living in the Netherlands and Brazil came to Curacao. The current building dates from 1730 and displays an attractive colonial style, with yellow-hue walls and white ornamentations. Step inside to see the well-preserved interior's many striking features, including three vaulted ceilings and a central chandelier. An onsite museum details the history of the synagogue and Jews in the Americas.

  • This is a small museum. Well located in an area that day is safe. The fee per person is high. The walk is worthwhile and is interesting. The architectural styles that can be seen from inside are numerous.
