  • It is odd to see that a synagogue has reopened in a country that expelled its Jews in the year 1492.  more »
  • Great place to show your kids that Judaism lived together with Christianity and Islam in Spain. The synagogue contains fine architecture and interesting art pieces. A must visit while in Toledo  more »

  • Amazing place to visit. Very friendly personnel. They downloaded the audio guide to my phone and I listened a tour with very good translation. You can visit this place for free if you are over 65+. It works for US seniors as well - just have to show your ID.
  • It's beautiful and gives a real taste of Jewish life in Spain. HOWEVER, it is not a functioning synagogue and someone had the very bad taste to stick a picture of a x outside. No mention of why there are no Jews in Toledo now. The neighbouring 'synagogue' is a church. Beware.
