  • One of the sites offering the city of Toledo... focuses above all on culture art and history of the Sephardic... Highly recommended entry is free from 2 in the afternoon.

  • outside basic building but once inside look around and view the brochure and indications. A true story

  • Interesting, calm, lots to read. If you visit around lunchtime, pack a picnic (or buy a loaf of yummy bread and cheese and the ubiquitous ham) and eat in the little park outside the synagogue  more »

  • Converted to a museum. Nice detail and artefacts inside, worth a visit.
  • Nice place with live music. Full of people if free
  • Small but nice and cheap. Free on Saturdays after 14:00, so try aim for that. Some shops for Jewish items in the vicinity.
  • A beautiful building with a sad history. Well preserved and nice small museum. Would have been better if the descriptions were available in English too but we are in Spain.
  • Well decorated interiors with quite a few artefacts although sadly lacking in English language explanations within the display cabinets. There's a small shop selling gifts as you exit. Free entrance on a Sunday :)
