I'm not sure what is going on but after 30 minutes of navigating with a lousy tourist map, we finally found the synagogue. It was closed without explanation and the outside is certainly not worth the effort to find it.

Abandoned and empty, it evoked the sadness of a people lost to this city and country. The building is unimpressive and empty and is only open for very limited hours.

It is a shame that the closure is not advertised more widely in the tourist office. It was hard to find and then to see it is closed was a let down. However the outside looks fascinating and I am sure when it reopens it...More

Closed for renovation. Normally closed on Mondays. Best to try to find statue of Maimonides! At present there is no planned re opening date. There is an ancient synagogue in Toledo ( closed on Mondays).

I passed by this place while exploring the Jewish quarter. It was closed when I was there. Some websites mentioned it is currently closed for renovation works, no idea when it will reopen. Hence I took some photos of its exterior and move on.

We were very disappointed that it was closed for repairs at the moment. The door was open and we peeked in, but couldn't see much. We'd love to see it sometime.

This was worthy of a visit in the historic centre, and a peaceful experience, in a mini time capsule for Jewish worship.

Apart from the religious connotations and the thought that this is only one of three synagogues left in Spain! This synagogue, though small is full of the most intricate, magnificent wall carvings, Truly beautiful.

Sometimes it the unexpected that surprises, this was one of them. Only one of three synagogues left in Spain, it is a small square building with some ornate plaster work, which has surprisingly survived. Well worth a visit.

I didn't see anything about when it will reopen. It looked like they were doing construction when we were there, and I was assuming they would reopen. I hope they do.

They didn't, unfortunately. I would have loved to go inside.
