Overview

Built in 1822 according to plans created by the architect Thierry and after being authorized by Louis XVIII in 1819, the Synagogue Notre-Dame-de-Nazareth remains one of the largest synagogues in Europe today. The space for worship was split in two, one devoted to Ashkenazi and the other to Sephardic Judaism, until they were unified and the current configuration inaugurated in 1852. The inspiration for the architectural style was drawn from Moorish aesthetics and design features, among which 12 remarkable windows represent the 12 tribes of Israel. Organ or viola performances often animate the synagogue; visitors are always welcome.
