  • An extraordinary experience for both my girlfriend and I. You will find inside more then 7 lodges (rooms) representing different architectural influence and time. From Egyptian to renaissance, oriental to classic, gothic to Germanic styles, the tour guide is really worthy. It felt like a museum since more than 1000 of years live through painting, symbols and architecture. My girlfriend who is not familiar with freemasonry love it ..actually, it was on a the nicest place we visit in the hole city.
  • An enlightening tour. It is worth the trip to travel all the rooms and get a glimpse of history, architecture, design, and excellence in all the small and bid details. Ask questions and interact with the guide so you can follow the tradition of the craft. "The right question always opens the right door". Be the architect of your own destiny by adding this destination into your trip agenda.
