“Must visit place”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is a tranquil place. The history of the Jews in Sefarad is so well researched and you must take your time to read the information boards. There is a whiff of proselytism in all these places. Wonderfully quiet patios

“Beautiful but Sad”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Enjoyed our time in Toledo but it was depressing to see what was once the center of the Jewish world reduced to a few tiles on the street...City has tried to revive history but so much more could be done (all they would have to do is literally dig a little and uncover additional Jewish history)

“Beautiful and Sad”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

This is a beautiful building in the old Jewish quarter of Toledo with many architectural and cultural details that have been well preserved. It serves not only to remind the world of the tragic injustices of the Spanish Inquisition, but to remind Spain of what their society lost due to this early example of ethnic cleansing.

“Did not live up to my expectations”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

This synagogue and museum is recommended by travel guides, so I went there with high expectations. But I was disappointed, as I did not find anything interesting or notable there. I am a history buff, enjoying museums and old churches, but this was not my place.

“A Interesting Historical Visit”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Well worth the visit but buy the audio guide.
It gives you booth an overview of the synagogue and the museum
There wasn't a lot about the inquisition but most of the descriptions
Of the contents were interesting.
Nothing is in English
