Barbuta is perhaps the city's most beautiful and cozy area to visit. The Synagogue asks for a small amount to pay for people to enter, I think they should do it for free (its interior is far from being as interesting as the one in...More

The synagogue with the Jewish Quarter is worth visiting. One can only imagine what kind of jewish life there used to be here. Also the river behind is beautiful.

Most of the time is closed. If anybody wants to visit, should call the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki and ask for the key or the days is open. The Jewish quarter though is very interesting.

We went to Varia and looked for the Jewish quarter - Barbouta and found the most ancient synagogue in Northern Greece and one of the oldest in all of Europe. The inside has wood carved ceilings and beautiful mosaic tiles.

We found it quite difficult to find without help from locals. Only one sign to the Jewish Quarter perhaps 150 m away. The whole area though is very worth finding being quaint buildings in a quiet area of Veroia.

The whole area is very old and used to be occupied by the Jews in Verea. But it stands as a monument to the many Jews who died during the second world war. Evie gives very informative tours and if you haven't met Pastor Nikos...More

One of the very few Jewish Synagogues in Greece. Best for a relaxing walk. Surely the place to be when in Veria.
