Fodor's Review

In Recife Antigo, on the site of the America's first synagogue, this excellent museum offers insight into the history and culture of the city, told through the experience of the Jewish population during the 1600s. 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.
