Both synagogues are located in a building of the old ghetto; they are devoid of any external monumental characteristics which allude to their presence.
The arrangement of the large temple’s hall is typical of Emancipation period synagogues, inspired by the model of Catholic churches: two sectors of benches in parallel rows facing the tevah and aron, both located in the same area, opposite the entrance zone. The hall perimeter features exquisite marble-effect painting and is lined with columns and lesenes with Ionian capitals and entablatures supporting an ample frescoed barrel vault.
The small winter oratory contains a valuable carved black-lacquered wooden aron with gilded decorations.
