Built in 1367, Carpentras Synagogue is the oldest synagogue still in use today in France, and one of the oldest in Europe.
Carpentras Tourist Office offers guided visits in French, English, and German, to enable visitors an informative experience learning about the history of Jews in the Comtat Venaissin.
Your guide will lead you through historic neighbourhoods in the heart of Carpentras, as well as the lower ground floors and prayer room in the synagogue.
On the ground and lower ground floors are the baths and pools (mikvé), designed for Jewish ritual cleansing, including the early pool that dates back to the 14th century. Other rooms house the bakery and ovens. The 18th century sanctuary is on the first floor.
