Amazing restoration of a significant cultural and historical building. A lasting tribute to a culture nearly lost during the inquisition. Take a guided tour here to learn the miraculous story of this building and the community it served.

Another reminder of what once was, which is worth visiting and remembering. Decent descriptive information in the rooms, however in most cases not in English. Worth a visit.

The main room has a beautiful wood ceiling and some other architectural features. Better signage including English would have helped the museum portion make more sense, especially for non-Jews. The archeological dig site was small but interesting. The restrooms were convenient and popular.

Well preserved and with very good explanation signs. You learn about the Jewish culture and the Sefardi Spanish Jews. The visit takes less than 1 hour and cost 3 Euro per person.

This is the more interesting of the two Synagogues in Toledo although both are worth seeing if you have the time. There were some interesting artifacts in the museum but very little of the information was in English. I think a revamp of the museum...More

This is a stunning renovation/reconstruction of a pre-expulsion synagogue, which overwhelms as you enter from the ticket office. It is by far the most interesting of the very limited number of Jewish sites to visit in Toledo and a credit to those who undertook the...More
