The Naval Academy stands on the former site of the St. James’ hospital, built in the 1640s for the quarantine of the navy soldiers coming from Asia.
The harbor: both commercial and touristic, it is still one of the greatest sources of income for the economy of the town. The Port of Livorno is one of the largest Italian seaports and one of the main seaports in the Mediterranean Sea.
Livorno Cathedral: dedicated to Saint Francis, it stands in Piazza Grande. The façade was completely rebuilt after bombings in World War II, with a portico supported by rounded arches, some of which were made by Inigo Jones, the father of English Renaissance architecture.

The synagogue and the Jewish community: Livorno had no ghettos. At the turn of the sixteenth century the ‘Livornina Law’ was approved, creating a Jewish settlement in the city. This law guaranteed worship freedom to all the Jews settled in the port town. The Jewish tradition therefore has a long history in Livorno. The actual synagogue was built in 1962 by Angelo di Castro.
