Although a similar structure probably stood here as long ago as 586 BCE, El Ghriba Synagogue was built during the 20th century. Decorated with shades of aqua blue, green, and white, the synagogue has a light and breezy look to it, complemented by the openness of the central courtyard. In what was once an all-Jewish town, the building stands as the island's best-preserved reminder of Jewish history in the country, attracting many pilgrims throughout the year.

Historical site, 5 min to visit. Free entry but They propose postcards for 3 TD,doesn't worth it
