The Great Synagogue of Florence was constructed in the late nineteenth century for the small Jewish population of Florence. During the WWII, the Synagogue was slightly damaged, but it was rebuilt after the war.

A relatively late addition to the Florence landscape built in the late 19th century. Nevertheless, the builders were inspired to create a synagogue that could reach the pinnacles of artistic beauty already achieved in Florence, an ambitious goal, but one which they achieved. It is truly a spectacular buildingRecommended for:

Reassembling the churches of the area with dynamic and intricate facade work of stone, Tempio Maggiore is quite a sight. It does not experience as much pollution as some of the other buildings in the same style due to its location, keeping the outside almost pristine.
