One of the pearls of Jewish Quarter
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on February 17, 2017

The synagogues are in their full glory now after resurrecting in 1967. It was interesting to visit them and to see the difference in layout in comparison to Ashkenazi synagogues - the central stage surrounded by seats. All four of them have interesting history and our guide was elaborating on that to us.

Beautiful decor

History unexpected
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on October 23, 2015

These four shuls offer a great glimpse into Sephardic history in Jerusalem. I would have liked it better with a dossan. To much of a ti.e line intertwined in the four buildings . definitely go but be prepared to research yourself through the history.
