it was very interesting to find this tiny Synagogue in the middle of the Barrio Gotic and it is thought to be one of the oldest Synagogues in Europe. It was used for many other things over the years and was reopened as a museum...More
We were looking for this temple for days and no one knew where it was but one day a street cleaner I asked and he direct us to this magnificent place in history. All of a sudden I was transported to the late 15 century...More
Visited this tiny place as the Jewish Museum was closed despite it being within advertised opening times. However, the staff gave a short but very informative talk about the history and were quite happy for us to soak up the very ancient atmosphere in our...More
Only three Spanish cities have synagogues remaining after the expulsion of 1492 (e.g. Segovia), but Cordoba’s is closed for renovations. I wanted to visit Barcelona’s Synagogue and saw it alone, since my husband got lost on the way from a different place (directions of Google...More
As should be expected, there’s not much to see and nothing original except the rooms. Having said that, the brief presentation was worth the visit. Especially to understand the building’s history and the way the inner walls were changed to make sure the “building” faced...More
As Jews interested in Jewish history, we found this place very interesting and worthwhile. Somewhat difficult to find and a very small space, but has an old feel and it was great to see other visitors interested, including Israelis. Maybe less interesting for the general...More

If you love history, if you love historical places, do yourself a favor and seek out this synagogue. You feel the energy the minute you walk through the small, unassuming entryway. Nice presentation given, but the real gem is just experiencing the antiquity of the...More
Short and sweet, small and wonderful! Yes we had to pay 3.5Euro, but I was happy to contribute to it for the upkeep of keeping the synagogue. What a gem to still have the building around when you think of the time that has elapsed...More
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local
musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
