  • Beautiful and well preserved synagogue then church. Hand crafted by Muslim artisians. Still an impact to experience.

  • The Sephardic Museum of Toledo is situated in a beautiful historical building that used to be the El Tránsito synagogue. The wall decorations, the windows, the ceiling and the delicate columns are all remarkable in their own right. Even if you're not particularly visiting for the museum's collection, a walk through the building is essential. It's well preserved and definitely worth the visit.
  • Not much information in English but nice visit overall. Some parts were closed (Women’s Gallery and Archeological dig)
