Ancient Synagogue - Review
The Main Synagogue of Barcelona which is also known as the Ancient Synagogue of Jewish Quarter holds a very prominent place in the hearts of the Jews of Barcelona. It is a representative of the hardships Jews had to face in the year 1391 when the entire Jewish Quarters was painfully massacred. Today, the synagogue stands as one of the only five medieval churches in the World and one of the oldest in Spain. After an interesting and an intriguing history, the church shut down for renovations and was finally restored in the year 2002 where it opened up as a historical centre and museum. It is one of the oldest sites in Barcelona and is definitely worth paying a visit to and learning about.

Ancient Synagogue, Barcelona Reviews
You can feel the history in this museum. The people working there make the experience all the more compelling. Somehow you can vividly imagine what went on in the Jewish community Many centuries ago
The place is very small, only 2 rooms. Actually we a bit dissappointed, just expected to see much more, but it's a very small judaik museum with ancient floor.
An ancient jewish temple that was unearthed. Not much there but interesting site since 10% of Barcelona was jewish until the late 1300 when all the Jews and Muslems were exiled, killed or forced to convert.
Interesting experience. Small, it only has a part of what it used to be. Inside there is a part of the Roman walls of the city.
Very moving to be in the oldest synagogue in Europe. Its just a shame its just a location with nothing left to really feel it.
