A plaque proclaims that there are only 3 historic synagogues left in Spain. This tiny gem is one of them. It was taken over by merchants and then monks until repairs uncovered Hebrew-language plaster work. The place has been lovingly restored and will make for a quick and delightful visit!

For European citizens the entrance is free, other don't pay much neither. the interior is nearly empty, but there are some rests of the old wall decorations and a good explanation/translation of the Hebrew verses on the walls. In my opinion, the place misses some documentation of the historical events (expulsion of Jews from Spain etc) and therefore leaves a... More

As EU citizens we were not charged an admission fee. Having visited the magnificent synagogues of Prague and Toledo (the latter with a well-stocked bookshop when we were there some years ago) I was not sure what to expect, and it is true that as a small structure this is perhaps more for those with an interest in Sephardic history...

Not for every taste, this place is more about the history of it than the architecture, so many people might find boring. Recommended!

This is a simple yet beautiful, one room building. It is free for EU citizens and €.30 for others. A very important site to visit, especially because of the expulsion of Jews from Spain in 1492.

The building is beautiful and well preserved. There are some nice inscriptions in Hebrew and some decorations. The only thins missing is an audio guide, that could add some explanations and interesting facts. It would really add value to the experience.

hard to find, but worth it when you get there. When you understand the history of the persecution of the Jews within Spain as a whole, the significance of the sight, is overwhelming

Not worth going out of your way to visit, but this single room from pre1200 has been discovered and restored to show how it would have looked 800 years ago. In contrast to the enormous cathedral / mosque this gave a feel for how the towns few Jewish residence would have met and worshipped together.

We're Not Jewish, but as history buffs we wanted to visit one of 3 oldest surviving Synagogues in Europe; but waiting tourists thronged the narrow street outside with their lecturing guides; on a winter weekday... so we couldn't get past the entryway (but its free, IF you can get in ;)... nearby shops feature Jewish-themed articles catering to all budgets...
