The Synagogue of Nice is located in the very center of the city, some 200 meters south of the Basilica of Notre Dame. Just like most of the other places of worship in Nice, it too was declared a historical monument (in 2007).

The Judaic temple of Nice was built in 1885 in a Byzantine style by the design of Paul Martin, and inaugurated in 1886. The structure impresses by its stone fa├žade and by the rosary window on top of the entrance. The stained glass windows depicting biblical scenes were added no sooner than 1993, subsequently to the massive restoration works completed in 1988.

This synagogue is not the only Judaic temple in Nice. Two other places of worship servicing the Jew community can also be spotted in the capital of the French Riviera, one on Rue Blacas and the other on Rue Alexis. In order to distinguish it from the latter two, it is often referred to as the Great Synagogue of Nice.
