Extremely interesting visit. The attendant is very helpful and answered all of our questions, sharing much information about the Jewish history of Tomar and the building. Please ask to see the museum, as we needed to initiate that, but it may have been because we were near closing time. There is a wonderful video presentation.

Built in the mid 16th century, it is the oldest synagogue in existence in Portugal. Although, today it is a museum. When built there was a sizeable Jewish population but today only a handful exist.

Not easy to find since it is a side street but there is a sin on the main street.

This place is not very easy to find but worth looking for as there is a video that explains the history behind the Synagogue and the importance of the location. The place is restored and it was valuable to learn about the history of Tomar.

There is almost no Jewish community left in Tomar, and the synagogue signage explains the history of their suppression. A place to reflect on the intolerance of the past that can so easily come back.

Interesting place to visit. Be sure to visit the interpretive centre next door. My only disappointment (and I was not the only one) is that the signage and literature was in a weird "google translate" style that made it hard to read. I wish the local tourism centre would consult native speakers on English.

Located on one of the narrow alleys in Old Town Tomar , built in mid 15th cent. and served really as a synagogue only a half century . Today , after a long tasteful restoration - it serves as a small museum , and the main importance of it - reminding the world about the history and role of existing Jewish population and life in medieval Portugal .

No much to see and for kids to get engaged with but if you are interested in history I am sure you'll find a thing or two that may be interesting for you.

It is a very small museum, not much left there to see.We spent 10 minutes and went. It is one room and a handfull of artifacts that you can see everywhere.

A very small but nice Synagogue. One with a lot of history and great importance. Hidden and not easy to find but I think a nice visit worth.
