Veneza evocativa Ghetto

Os cantos pitorescas de Veneza

The oldest and best preserved Jewish quarter of Europe is not far from the Ca ‘San Marcuola. At the edge of the busiest tourist routes, the ghetto is characterized by its high houses, the windows small and the Jewish Museum, able to condense into a small space, the history of the Jewish community in Venice. Between objects and memorabilia dedicated to the worship and festivities, the institute takes us to the visit of 3 beautiful synagogue located next to the museum. A tip: if you’re around here at dinner, enjoy the fine cuisine Jewish and enter one of the restaurants in the Ghetto. Fun fact: few know that the word “ghetto” comes from the Ghetto of Venice. The part of the city from the fourteenth century it was inhabited by Jews, was originally home of the iron foundry, which cast the molten metal, casting, or arose from the Venetian geto gheto.
