After the Reconquista, Jews in Spain were offered Christian conversion or expulsion. Many converted, but the descendants of the converts were then subjected to the persecution of the Inquisition. Finally, in 1492, the Jews of SPain were expelled by the Catholic monarchs. If you know before the terrible history of religious persecution, seeing this small surviving synagogue is fairly profound.

It doesn't take long to visit this small 14th C. synagogue but it's worth a stop as you're traversing the Street of the Jews. It is one of three synagogues that are preserved in Spain. It is built in the Mudejar style with a small square room, a balcony for the women and with Hebrew writing on the upper walls.... More

For anyone who knows and understands what happened to the Jewish community during the Inquisition, it is really important to visit this synagogue, one of only three in Spain that survives. It is a modest building that once served as the spiritual home for a vibrant community.

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.
