This place again is so well preserved and all the detail on the walls is incredible. The Arabic influence can be seen in the work but it is all stunning.

While no longer a functioning synagogue, El Transito is definitely worth a visit. It has been nicely restored with many of the original architectural details such as the wooden ceiling and carved arches still in place. An audio guide is included with admission and there's...More

Toledo has a large Jewish presence until the 1400’s until they were expelled. This was one of the city’s worship places. It is understated (as temples tend to be) yet beautiful. For this and other attractions in the city it is advantageous to purchase the...More

A few euros for the ticket and about 20-30 minutes of time. But don't skip it, you'll see and learn about a piece of both Spanish and Jewish history. However, there are two synagogues in Toledo, the other one (Sinagoga de Santa Maria La Blanca)...More

All over Spain there are reminders of the once vibrant life of the Jewish communities. But, for the most part, this building is yet another example of how effectively Jews were erased....

Enjoyed this authentic synagogue. There were old artifacts and I enjoyed experiencing the various rooms. Upstairs is for the women to pray, as was tradition in old times. Not a lot to see but liked it.

Being Jewish, visiting this synagogue and learning about the history meant a lot. The building is beautiful and very moving. Our tour guide was able to share aspects of culture, religion and architecture that made this visit very special.

This is a beautiful place in Toledo. The architecture alone, as you enter the main room, is worth marveling at. I found it difficult to understand the full significance of some of the artifacts that were on display, because the audio guide I was poor--I...More

The "Sinagoga El Transito" is one of the jewels of Toledo and a must see. The outside did not say much to me, but the inside was amazing. It houses the Sefardi Museum, a must visit.
