Built by the architect Abraham Hirsch in 1863 in neo-Byzantine style, the synagogue is listed as a historical monument. It stands on the site of the former Lyon arsenal, built under François 1 st in 1536 and destroyed in 1793. The synagogue is divided into two buildings: the first (160 m2) overlooks the quay and has a beautiful façade; the second (550 m2) is set back from the street.
