Building was once a synagogue

After being in the Cathedral, this synagogue is very underwhelming but we went to support it's continued maintenance.

I was really surprised by the fact that the sinagogue was empty. Reading about Toledo´s history one realizes that jewish presence in the city was quite important, therefore do not understand why there is no attempt at all to pay respect to it´s past.

This was the gem on the tour my wife and I took. We were simply amazed and the combination and complexity of how all three religions were represented in the building. Worth a visit!!

I regret to say that unless you really like old, empty buildings, it might be best to give this one a miss. As other reviewers have found, it has little to offer. This small building is a strange mix of 'Moorish' arches, hexagonal pillars with some Jewish & Christian features & hectares of white-wash. And that's it. The only English... More

Had to pay Eur 2.50 to get it, and once you're inside there's nothing much to see! No explanations whatsoever. so unless you're here with a guide, expect to leave as clueless as when you arrive!

Paid five or so euros to get in for each person. Its literally a big room with some patters on the floor. Not worth it at all! Went in and out in around 4 minutes.

This small building has those wonderful spanish/muslim/jewish decorations all over it! The columns are decorated, the walls are cool, and the ceilings! If you like these ornate architectural details, this is a real find.
