Synagogue and Jewish Museum

This synagogue, France's oldest, dating from the 15C, was rebuilt in Provençal Baroque style between 1772 and 1774. Only the exterior turret hints at the presence of an older building. The prayer room contains colourful panelling, stucco pictures of olive branches, baskets of fruit and ironwork. Various objects relating to Jewish liturgy, such as manuscripts, prayer books and a map of Comtat Venaissin are exhibited in the area transformed into a museum.
