It was an interesting visit to the cemetery and the other historic buildings, and memorial to those who lost their lives in WW2. I don't think its an essential place and we were unfortunate that the Spanish Synagogue was closed during our stay. The Jewish...More

It is a cemetary with about 12 thousand tombe stones fighting for a place in the yard. The time has weathered them a lot.

The cemetery, by itself, is worth the visit, but as someone else stated, it's very expensive. You cannot just visit the cemetery without buying a fairly pricey ticket to other parts of the Jewish quarter.

few synagogues and the oldest surviving Jewish
cemetery in Europe. The narrow streets were once small
enough that a person could touch the houses on both
sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this

You can buy tickets in person at the entrance, which is also valid for the other Jewish history attraction like the synagogues.

Dear Dblake55, it is difficult to answer this question, but if you ask for amount of visitors in the cemetery, it is best to start at 9.00 in the morning.
