Tomar  Synagogue reopens to the public after restoration

The Tomar Synagogue has reopen to the public after 11 months of preservation work. The project included the conservation and restoration of the monument (plastering, covering, electrical, acoustics, creation of exhibitions).

A very rare example of a Portuguese medieval Jewish temples, the Tomar Synagogue is the only one of its time to survive intact. It was built in the mid-15th century. On the walls of the synagogue, the twelve corbels symbolize the twelve tribes of Israel. The four pillars represent the four matriarchs: Sarah, Rebekah, Leah, and Rachel, the latter two being the twin daughters of Laban.
