Luckily there was an art exhibition in progress the day we visited that complemented the site. Since it is a smaller synagogue, there is not as much to view as the other larger ones. Some people might not want to pay the 2.5E fee for this reason.

Don't know that I would bother. Looks more like a mosque inside than a synagogue. However, was only 2euros each

This simple, yet beautiful building from the 13th c. has a serene interior with Moorish horse-shoe arches and mudéjar wall decorations. It was built as a sinagogue for the once thriving Jewish community in Toledo, but upon their expulsion it was converted to a church. Although not impressive in size, it is a legacy of a culture that was unfortunately not allowed to exist in Spain. There is an entrance fee of 2,50 Euro, and it´s open most of the day in summer.

This was a very beautiful synagogue, and a nice example of the Jewish presence in Toledo, but rather small. If you need to choose, go to the El Transito Synagogue - but why not both? :)

The arches inside the building are lovely and rather Moorish. There was a modern art display there at the time otherwise it's rather empty.
