About this building
The Synagogue in Burgas is a Sephardi synagogue built between 1905 and 1909 by the architect Ricardo Toscani. The synagogue was restored in 1929 and 1967. The Neo-Moorish brick building served as a synagogue until WWII and is now an art centre.
The Church of Christ Pantocrator is an Orthodox church built in the 13th-14th century and is one of the most remarkable and best-preserved medieval churches in Nessebar. In the middle of the nave rise four slender columns that once carried a dome. The drum of the dome, richly decorated, has 8 arched windows. The narthex is relatively cramped, with a medieval tomb on its floor. Inside the walls, only traces of the original frescoes that once covered them are preserved.
The last major repair and restoration of this 15th century mosque was financed by Turkey in 2017. The frescoes have been restored in accordance with the period of construction of the mosque, so as to contribute to the calm interior atmosphere.
