The Jewish quarter of Toledo retains some of its original character and much of its architecture, some of which is of surprising beauty. Look for the historical markings and visit the gorgeous synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca.

Away from the lively plaza and busy side streets of the central part of Toledo, is a quieter area which is the home of the Jewish Quarter. This area, which dates back to approximately the 12th Century, is the home of synagogues as well as the traditional mezuzahs and mikvahs.

Tribute is paid to Samuel ha-Levi in the form of a statue as well the naming of a main street in the Jewish Quarter. Samuel ha-Levi was a prominent Jewish resident in Toledo who founded the Synagogue of El Transito.

One of the landmarks in the Jewish Quarter is Casa del Judio, a magnificent building that is still privately owned. Visitors to the Jewish Quarter will know where they are by the small blue tiles that are engraved with symbols such as Hebrew letters and menorahs.

This is a great place to learn about an important part of Toledo’s history which also offers a respite from the hustle and bustle of Toledo.

My ancestors were Sephardic and visiting this Jewish Quarter was like walking with them along these streets. It is both beautiful and sad, since they were expelled in the 15th century. However Spain has made an effort to invite descendants back by offering Citizenship to those who can complete certain requirements. It is a healing gesture, and I hope to return and learn even more about my ancestors.

During our city tour with local professional guide, we focused on the Jewish Quarter, visiting the Synagogue and the significance in this town. This was the last part of our tour and wish that we had more free time to explore here.

We continued our walk through the tangle of cobbled streets in La Juderia or the Jewry where at one time Jews had enjoyed a life that could celebrate their own culture. Throughout the old Jewish neighborhood, streets were marked with colorful symbols such as a menorah to lead the way, in addition, along these very narrow streets we saw homes marked with more Jewish symbols, that notes a Jew once lived here. On a corner wall I found a sign that read Ruta de Don Quijote. I later found that this is only a small portion of a 2,500 km route that is a network of historic paths, creeks and trails through 148 towns throughout Castilian La Mancha. What a fun walk that would be!

Definitely go see this as part of a tour of Toledo. We took a wonderful walking tour, the we booked online with Viatour and that originated in Madrid.

The Jewish Quarter is a quieter part of Toledo with narrow streets and interesting architecture. Look for the Jewish symbols on the walls and ground as you wander. See the Synagogue that is now a museum. Learn of the history - first of tolerance and then expulsion of the Jewish people there. Well worth a visit.

This is where Synagogue of San Maria is located and close to the Monastery Reyes. Our travel guide gave us the history when Jewish, Muslims and Christians cooexisted in peace. Each one gave to the other its gifts and talents. It is also close to one of the outside walls

We toured this area as part of our City Tour. Visit the synagogue while you are there. Quaint narrow streets.
