Wonderful example of the history of Jews, Muslims, and Christians in Toledo

It doesn't take much time to visit this synagogue/church in the Moorish style, but its beauty if well worth a stop.

We visited this site two days ago and it is worth the fee. You won't see anything else like it in Toledo except the magnificent cathedral.

This small synagogue is one of the oldest in Europe and it's simple interior is breathtaking. It was built by the moors for Jewish use and is now preserved by the Catholic Church ... a true mix of cultures. You won't spend long here, but take time to wander in to this peaceful place

It's more or less one big room in moorish style with two christian style windows that reflect it's now multi faith useage. Not many people visiting but it's a beautiful building in moorish style. and well worth seeing.

This is the oldest synagogue in Europe still standing. it is quite impressive for sure. The guide told us a story that the Moors built it not knowing that men and women should be separated. When the jews discovered the mistake they did nothing since they were so impressed by the work. The columns are absolutely beautiful.

This was included in the Toledo Card Experience so I went, but... what for, exactly. It was empty, although the architecture was lovely I guess? Unfriendly staff in the souvenir boutique as well.

This synagogue is a small one and is located in the Jewish Quarter.Price is high for such a small hall but it is a place to be seen. There are not many visitors. This place is quite nice to visit. You will enjoy the tour.

Although this was a lot of Euro for one room, it is a nice room and they've used lights to make it even lighter. It would be great to get more history about what it is, why it is and why it's maintained by the Catholic church, but for looks it does score quite high.

This was very sparsely visited when I was there, and not really touted in the guidebooks, but it's a gorgeous space in a moorish style. It's small and doesn't take much time to see, but well worth it. It's 5 minutes down the road from the El Greco house and El Transito synagogue.
