Arquivo Judaico de Pernambuco

Arquivo Judaico de Pernambuco Review

Located on the site of the America's first synagogue, this excellent museum offers detailed insight into the history and culture of the city, as well as the evolution of the Jewish experience in Brazil. All that remains of the original sanctuary, built in 1641, are the walls and the ground, which can be viewed through glass floor panels. Some guides speak English, and the informative signs are bilingual.
