  • Lovely old synagogue tucked away in the side streets of the old town. What it lacks in visual appeal (currently under renovation), it makes up for in lovely, caring staff. They went out of their way to make me feel at home and brought the history to life.
  • A very beautiful Ancient synagoge and reach in history. Romaniotes Jewish community of Crete.
  • Womderful and peaceful place.
  • the president of the synagogue was very nice and helpful over the phone. great place to visit!
  • Truly memorable. I'm not a synagogue visitor type, but this one and its story are special. The docents are so forthcoming and earnestly into the spirit of it, and their earnestness is contagious. You won't regret visiting Etz Hayyim.
