La Sinagoga - The Synagogue

Europe’s largest, the synagogue was built between 1901 and 1904 in Rome’s Jewish  ghetto.
The temple, which  was intended to be visible from every panoramic point of the city, was constructed between the most important symbols of Rome’s rediscovered religious freedom: the Campidoglio, seat of the city government, and the Janiculum, emblem and site of the famous 1849 battle between the Garibaldi-led Republican forces of the Risorgimento  and French troops allied to the Pope.
Today the Synagogue may be visited from Sunday to Thursday; not on Saturday which is the Jewish Sabbath, day of rest.
After a visit to the temple, there is nothing more pleasant than a leisurely walk through this fascinating district, dotted also with a series of renowned kosher restaurants.
