SY­N­A­GOGUE DE BOR­DEAUX

Charming Bordeaux - - THE DISTRICTS OF BORDEAUX -

12

Built in 1878 by the ar­chi­tect Charles Du­rand for the Jewish Con­sis­tory of Bor­deaux. Per­haps be­cause there is no clearly es­tab­lished model for draw­ing a sy­n­a­gogue, the ar­chi­tect used an eclec­ti­cism which min­gled me­dieval art with ori­en­tal ref­er­ences. It is con­sid­ered as one of the most beau­ti­ful syn­a­gogues in Eu­rope. 6 rue du Grand Rab­bin Joseph Co­hen - B > Vic­toire Vis­it­ing hours from 1st March: Mon­day to Thurs­day, 2pm to 6pm. Closed dur­ing re­li­gious hol­i­days ((29/03-08/04 ; 21/05 ; 10/09-12/09 ; 19-20/09 ; 22/09-03/10) €5 with au­dio­gu­ide. 4€ with the Citypass (from 1st March)
