Well preserved and with very good explanation signs. You learn about the Jewish culture and the Sefardi Spanish Jews. The visit takes less than 1 hour and cost 3 Euro per person.

This is the more interesting of the two Synagogues in Toledo although both are worth seeing if you have the time. There were some interesting artifacts in the museum but very little of the information was in English. I think a revamp of the museum...More

This is a stunning renovation/reconstruction of a pre-expulsion synagogue, which overwhelms as you enter from the ticket office. It is by far the most interesting of the very limited number of Jewish sites to visit in Toledo and a credit to those who undertook the...More

We spent quite some time here as the building was so beautiful and repaid close examination of the detail. The Hebrew calligraphy was unusual and beautiful as was the remaining wall decoration. We were lucky to have it to ourselves for much of the time...More

I have really mixed feelings about this site. First, if you are Jewish, you have to go there to touch history. This is one of many towns in Europe where Jews used to live for centuries until they were killed or expelled. So I felt...More

Had great expectations as we have a keen interest in Jewish history but our enjoyment and ability to learn more was diminished by the lack of English labels on the displays. It also highlights how the centuries of the community in Toledo have been erased.
