Description
Also known as the Semper Synagogue because it was designed by Gottfried Semper (1803-79), the synagogue was constructed from 1838 to 1840 and inaugurated in 1840. It was among the first modern synagogues to be built in the Moorish style, as part of the Moorish revival movement. Though the exterior was romanesque and relatively subdued, the interior was lavishly outfitted in a moorish revival style, with columns copied form the Alahambra.
