Interesting artifacts, unfortunately no English labels of any kind (and no audio to rent.) Good maps showing historical migration through the peninsula and Europe, Sephardic clothing (recreated.)

The inside of the synagogue is really beautiful. The small museum with artifacts from the Jews in the last few centuries was interesting. One of the many places to see in this small medivial town. It is preserved quite well.

This place again is so well preserved and all the detail on the walls is incredible. The Arabic influence can be seen in the work but it is all stunning.

While no longer a functioning synagogue, El Transito is definitely worth a visit. It has been nicely restored with many of the original architectural details such as the wooden ceiling and carved arches still in place. An audio guide is included with admission and there's...More

Toledo has a large Jewish presence until the 1400’s until they were expelled. This was one of the city’s worship places. It is understated (as temples tend to be) yet beautiful. For this and other attractions in the city it is advantageous to purchase the...More
