Lovely 16th Century Synagogue in the heart of the Jewish Quarter in Rhodes Old Town with some unusual wall paintings. Interesting and informative museum on Judaica and the history of Jewish people on Rhodes. Nice shop too.

We had to come twice because the first time we came after it closed for the day. It was very educational to read and see all the exhibits. It shows how the Jews lived in Rhodes.
