Sinagoga del Agua, Ubeda

(4.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • One is surprised by what you see since it crosses the entrance. The guide explains with enthusiasm and wealth of the recovered data and the assumptions about the environment and location. Although the furniture and decorative elements have been brought to recreate the environment recovered spaces have enough entity to make this place a must visit. Special mention for the wells and the mikveh.

  • Very interesting to visit in Úbeda. I think lack them promotion. Stunning both the synagogue itself (space) as the setting. Very achieved, light, smells... Everything there invites to prayer for what do you a good idea of their function. Ritual bath the best part of the visit, because it is something that was the first time that we saw and by its uniqueness. The explanations of the guides... Impressive. The moment takes you back with the word... A place with was power very special...
