Beautifully restored building, misses some furniture

My first visit in a synagogue. The building is to be seen, nothing in common with other places you'll visit in Toledo. Sadly there is no furniture.

Although it is small it is the oldest and the largest of Toledo's original synagogues and is a lovely place to visit. Beautifully carved stone capitals and wall panels stand out against the plain white arches. The restoration of this building makes it worth visiting while you are in the city.

We visited this building as part of a Trafalgar tour. It was very impressive inside and in lovely condition. We had the advantage of a guide with us to explain the architecture and the history of the religions, pointing out the amazing details in the decorations. Definitely a plus to have a guide with you, we would not have gathered... More

An exceptionally pretty temple with amazing lighting and symbolism throughout. There are several marginal sights on the 9 attraction wrist band sold in Toledo - but this one is a must see.

Yes - this is an impressive interior. Well restored, but still has a great atmosphere. Not a great deal of information in English. Not worth the admission fee, unless you are wanting to see the architecture.

This small synagogue from the early 1200's is now maintained by the Catholic church as a museum. A small courtyard with cypress trees leads to the entrance. It has a simple yet striking interior of white Moorish arches. Close to the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes and part of the Toledo tourist bracelet, it merits a short visit.

Went to transito synagogue before this one and was left underwhelmed when we arrived. Seems like the property is still in limbo, waiting out the Catholic Church to release it back to a third party organization to better preserve it. Architecture is typical Mozarabic and the space is rather barren.

Only a brief visit on our private guided tour, worth a quick look, the architecture is lovely and well kept

Go here to understand the beauty of Jewish and Islamic architecture in Europe and the horrifying misbehaviour of peace and love preaching religious groups and political leaders in Europe.
