The Portuguese-Israeli Synagogue was built in the period 1670-75 by Elias Bouman. The synagogue is located on the Mr. Visserplein, a busy roundabout between the Weesperstraat and the motorway leading to the IJ-tunnel. This area used to be the heart of the Jewish Quarter. The low buildings around the synagogue enclose a courtyard. The front elevation is subdivided by pilasters, the ones at the corners standing slightly away from the corner itself. The austere elevation formed by the corner bays which recede a little are closed by a cornice above which is a balustrade and an attic. Please refer the website for the timings as they differ seasonally.
