Religious Site Tourist Spot
Visit a truly hidden gem in the Spanish city of Ubeda at Sinagoga del Agua, a relic of Judaism in Spain that lay undiscovered behind a local home until 2006. Explore the synagogue, which lies below street level, and its warren of tunnels and rooms. Entry to the underground complex includes access to the synagogue itself, as well as a guided tour through the rooms, with background on the history of Jews in Spanish cities from medieval times to the present day. Ponder the mystery of the site’s construction and the lives of those who used it. Be sure to check the online schedule for special events and talks on a variety of subjects throughout the year. Keep in mind that although information is available in printed form in English, the tours are conducted in Spanish.

  • A hidden gem! The visit, which has a cost of € 4, is done in guided groups. They explain the history of its discovery some years ago and how they have conditioning it. They are a set of 3 Jewish houses that "restored it" to recreate it as faithfully as possible. It is very nice.
