This is beautiful place. It has the delicate moorish design - both the lacey carved stone and the beautiful carved ceilings. This was my favorite "church' in all Toledo.

there is a main room that is half destroyed and a lot of information about jewish migration in the medieval ages. I would recommend it because in Spain there are only 3 Synagogues remaining from that time period (see I learned that) But its not...More

One of the most historic and finest sites in Toledo. Richly built and well kept, small museum of sefardic jews in Spain as a plus.

We did not get a tour guide, and wish we had. Even with GPS on phone, we wandered for so long trying to find this area and the Synagogue. Even a taxi would have given us more time in the actual sights. The Synagogue was...More

Amazing restoration of a significant cultural and historical building. A lasting tribute to a culture nearly lost during the inquisition. Take a guided tour here to learn the miraculous story of this building and the community it served.

Spend a little time learning about the Jewish history in Toledo. Its remarkable and this museum and the synagogue capture so much history that has almost vanished but is still evident throughout the city. Excellent museum; get a guide for additional commentary and cultural insight.

If you want to understand part of Spain history , not just the Jewish part of it, this is where in one place you can start to grasp what has the region gone through

Again reminder of what once was. English descriptions of the exhibits would be a help for many. As is usually the case most relics are 19th century forward, not pre Inquisition. Though demonstrative of Jewish and Sephardic customs, not necessarily what existed in this place...More
