The Portuguese Synagogue in Amsterdam and is also named: Esnoga. The synagogue was built in the 17th century by the Sephardic Jews (whose ancestors lived in Spain and Portugal). The synagogue is located in the center of Amsterdam at the Mr. Visserplein, in the former Jewish quarter of Amsterdam. When it was built, it was the largest synagogue in the world. The colossal building dominated the area and it actually still does. The synagogue is part of a large synagogue complex. Only the Portuguese Synagogue Amsterdam still fulfills its original function. The interior of the Portuguese Synagogue Amsterdam is preserved. Copper candelabra and candleholders adorn the interiors, which at that time was very rare.
