Santa Maria La Blanca - Review
Erected in 1180, this synagoga was originally known as Ibn Shushan Synagogue. It is said to be the oldest synagoga of Europe that is still standing without much damage. At present, the building is owned by the Catholic Church. The unique feature of the building is its design as the building was constructed under the Christian kingdom of Castile by Islamic architects for Jewish use. So, the architectural design has the influence of the three religions, i.e. Christianity, Islamic and Jewish. Till date, this synagoga is considered as the ‘symbol of the cooperation’ among three religions and its culture that existed specially in the Iberian Peninsula during the reign of Middle Ages.

Santa Maria La Blanca, Toledo Reviews
Don't let the name fool you, it's not a sinagogue. You're paying to see a single room, which isn't bad, but maybe not worth the price. Look at the picture and decide
Obviously the place is very interesting and the craftsmanship exquisitely beautiful. Unfortunately the place is small and not very well organized. You have to queue quite a bit for tickets. The cashier was pretty unpolite and this is the only time I have seen this in Spain. The audio guide had 4 2 short entries. Was it worth the visit? Of course.
Very small building with a lovely receiving area on the outside. However, the inside of the synagogue was extremely small and boring. There was really nothing of interest inside to see. Perhaps the audio guide might have been something, but we didn’t quite feel the desire to pay for it.
Enterance fee costs 2.8 Euros per person. Nice interior but lack of things to be seen since all walls painted white.
Very small place with painted walls (no original preserved walls) . very little murals and engravings. Only visit if you must.. Many more places of importance in Toledo
