Crete’s only remaining synagogue (dating from the 15th century) was badly damaged in WWII and reopened in 1999. It sports a mikve (ritual bath), tombs of rabbis and a memorial to the local Jews killed by the Nazis. Today it serves a small congregation and is open to visitors. Find it on a small lane accessible only from Kondylaki street.
