Photography: First official Synagogue in the Americas

27 May

Packing our memories out… Preparing our Farewell…

We are always trying to collect unique images from our host city. Downtown Recife encloses several little architecture gems (shown here), gifts from the Portuguese, Spanish and Dutch influences. In the world’s largest Catholic nation, the Recife synagogue has become an important symbol of the Jewish heritage in Brazil. It is one of the main stops on the city’s tourist circuit, located at the Rua Bom Jesus, old town Recife and its archives attract Brazilian and foreign historians.

    I would not easily have guessed it was a synagogue, from the exterior!
