We stopped by this sight on our first day in Toledo because it was close to our hotel. Really not much to see. The interior architecture is quite beautiful, but little information was provided to put this building in a good historic context. Worth a visit just to see the interior. We actually bought the wrist band that covers multiple... More

It's well worth a trip and great to weave your way around the Jewish Quarter. Mind you I was surprised to see a plaque informing me on the street floor that I was entering same. The synagogue is simple and well worth seeing.

The inside of the synagogue has numerous beautiful columns. Wonderful photo opportunity. Not much info in English about the synagogue. There was also a special exhibit that was free and worth vining in a small room towards the back of the outdoors area. Seeing both we were only there 15 - 20 minutes. 2.5 euro entry.

This attraction is relatively small and I had to look for it. It truly represents a melting pots of the three major cultures: Jews, Muslims, and Christians. It is a synagogue that was built by Moorish architects. It has been converted to a church and taken the name of Santa María La Blanca. I wish I have better knowledge and... More

Though interesting to see the architecture of the building that has been used for many purposes over the centuries, this structure doesn't compare to the excellent Sephardi Museum down the street that gives the complete history and culture of the Jews of Toledo and Spain.

Although this synagogue is being repaired, there was a lot to see for those is us who've never been educated in the Jewish faith. The columns and wall art is detailed and spectacular!!

When you have been to synagogues in other places in the world you expect to see more. It feels a bit expensive.

This Synagogue has a lot of Moorish Architecture inside, I don't think it is used anymore, but it is well worth a visit. It is a bit of a mishmash of design, with the stylish columns and arches, an old basic stone wall at the back and a simple cross, up high, in the centre aisle. It has a beautiful... More
