Antico Ghetto e Sinagoga Pitigliano, Pitigliano

4.1
#2 of 12 in Things to do in Pitigliano
Often considered Italy's "Little Jerusalem," Pitigliano is an excellent place to dive into Italo-Jewish history, and there is perhaps no better starting point than Antico Ghetto e Sinagoga Pitigliano. The gold-and-white synagogue was built in 1598 and boasts carved pews, a wooden pulpit, and a Holy Ark. Though the synagogue is rarely used today, you can still check out the venues for the ritual bath, the striking of unleavened bread, and the kosher butcher and winery. Surrounding the synagogue is the ghetto, where you can find a labyrinth of alleys, winding staircases, small squares, and shops. This historical ghetto served as the center of the Jewish community in Pitigliano for many centuries, and is a charming place to lose yourself in today.

  • Walking through the old town among narrow alleys and characteristic, you find yourself in the ghetto with its synagogue evoking moods and thoughts that inevitably slip into memory looking for pictures of a recent heavy past. A visit is a must
