Synagogue serves as the oldest Sephardic rite synagogue in the world and the second-oldest Jewish synagogue in Europe. Established in 1352, this ghetto synagogue is still operational and hosts a museum of Iberian Jewish items and artifacts. Visit the site, hidden in a small narrow street, for the chance to see ceremonial horns, prayer books, and Torah pointers. Observe the old, heavy wooden elements, which embue the place with an old-world feel. The site also holds numerous documents and manuscripts about the Jewish history in Croatia, from the people's arrival in 1421 through expulsion in World War II.

While small it was a wonderful stop. The history is interesting and a good glimpse into Croatian past.
Small synagogue but well worth visiting. The guide told us a lot about the current Jewish community in Dubrovnik and a bit about the history too. Well worth a visit.
