The ghetto had line of houses with large rectangular courtyards and all the shops and houses were interconnected to a central square (Chatzer). In the centre of the ghetto is German rites synagogue opened in 1864 has a complicated façade with pillars full of Jewish images. Like most of the islands that make up Venice, the ghetto was totally surrounded by water. Its two access points were controlled at night and early morning by heavy gates manned by Christian guards both protecting and segregating its inhabitants. The prayer room is tastefully done with oriental decorations and minute stonework on the wall, what catches ones eye is the remarkable ceiling!
The ghetto consists of an open square surrounded by "skyscrapers" on three sides. The lack of space in the ghetto resulted in many buildings having as many as seven stories The Street till date has the original appearance and one can spot buildings with projecting roofs. The charm of ghetto still lies in the narrow streets, the old shops and typical dwellings.
