  • We enjoyed the beautiful synagogue and small museum located right next to the el Greco museum. Not much of the exhibit was in English, only Spanish.

  • This synagogue, which dates back to the 14th Century was founded by Samuel ha-Levi, one of Toledo’s most prominent citizens. When I visited, I was impressed at how well maintained this stucco...

  • The Synagogue and the Sephardic Museum are highly recommended. There are no audioguides available, but it is easy to download the App and there are lots of information panels in Spanish and English. PDFs can be downloaded in other languages.
  • This is an exquisite building. Well worth the entrance fee. The museum had some worthwhile aspects to it, though unfortunately it is not fully honest about the violent persecutions which resulted in the destruction of Toledo’s Jewish community.
  • Interestig Synagoga in Barrio Juderias few meters from our apartment, cost 3 euro entrance worth to visit and have feeling regarding the 3 cultures that leaved in Toledo
  • Beautiful place, now a museum for the sefardí people (Jews that lived in Spain)
  • Even though it looks a really good museum, all the signs are in Spanish:(
