I was very excited to see the synagogue on Djerba island.
It is located somewhat outside of the urban areas, in a quiet place near Houmt Souk.
Nicely maintained white building and very colorful interior, Jewish traditions and faith, with a touch of North Africa, this is the El Ghriba Synagogue. Very very unique.
They ask you to take the shoes off and cover your had, men and women both. Everything is provided right there. The place is not too big, so unless you want to read every line in Hebrew on the walls, you get to see all kind of quickly.
My advice is that before you visit, read something briefly about the history of the Jewish community on Djerba (or generally in North Africa).
