Portuguese Synagogue is a relic of the mass migration of Portuguese Jews to Amsterdam during the Inquisition. The ornate synagogue, finished in 1675, allowed the Jews, who had been expelled from Spain and subsequently fled Portugal, the freedom to practice their religion. Take a tour to gain a deeper understanding of the hardships the Jews faced. A tour that includes a guided walk through the Jewish quarter in addition to the synagogue is also available.

  • Gets a 5 out of 5. Simply because of the guy who turn us down at the entrance. I cant remember the quote but i felt like he was saying "you have got no ticket? then get out of here you crazy englishman" loved it.
  • Impessive place! However, they take 15 euros for a visit. I never heard churches or mosques charge an entrance fee. Guys, religion is not a bussines, hah?!
  • A beautiful synagogue with self guided tours and lots of information (in sevral languages). Very enlightening and nice to see.
  • The biggest synagogue of Amsterdam with a wast history behind can be one of the tourists attraction.
  • Impressive synagogue. One of the oldest in Europe. You can listen to some important facts about it's history with the gadget that you receive when you buy the ticket.
