Synagogue
“The Great Synagogue is a large two storey building with a square base surmounted by a large dome. The Synagogue of the Jewish ghetto of Rome is also, and above all, a place of prayer and a vital cultural reference point for the entire Jewish community. In the basement there is the Jewish museum and the Spanish Temple, a small synagogue which is worth a visit.”
