  • Impressive building which houses the Sephardic Museum and which gives you idea of the importance of the Jews in the city at the time. Visit bound next to the Cathedral and the Museum of the Greco.

  • For a return to the Jewish past of Toledo quite interesting but quick. Too bad that the photos are not permitted because the first room walls are superb.

  • 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 :)
  • 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.
  • Impressive prayer hall marking the Jewish heritage in Toledo in Spain. There is an English audioguide accessible by your smartphone. However, there are no English notes in the museum.
  • A must see for any Jew or anyone in a mixed faith marriage. Overall very nice, wish the literature for non-Spanish speaking tourist was in more visibility places.
