Built as a mosque, used as a synagogue, converted to a church... a highly unusual religious edifice. Should go see. Very pretty

Beautiful internal space, once a synagogue and now Christian. You need the audio commentary as there are few written explanations. Worth seeing from a historical perspective. Would have liked to know more about it however, even with the commentary.

Completely empty/ striped down interior featuring, you guessed it; bare white walls, bare columns, bare floors. The admission of 2.8 euro per person is just theft, imho.

The people have saved their heritage in a building that has formed the task of being a Synagogue, a Mosque and a Church at different times in its history. While we believe we have a tolerant society now, this city of Toledo epitomizes epitomizes true...More

There is almost nothing to see and it has no atmosphere or sense of history.
