Sinagoga del Agua, Ubeda

4.7
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.

  • Pretty impressive place in the beautiful Ubeda. It was disappointing that it is only possible to buy a guided tour, but the tour is only in Spanish.
  • Amazing place, unmissable spot, incredible history. The synagogue has been hidden for centuries and it's in an surprisingly good state. Apparently is the only Sephardic synagogue found with all the rooms and compartments that a synagogue should have. It's definitely worth a visit.
  • Beautiful site dla dla Inquisition era. Very interesting talk and guide magnifica
