It is the only synagogue, belonging to the 14th century and was built under the recommendation of Pedro I. It now houses the Museo Sefardi. True to its era, the architectural design of the synagogue reflects a mixture of artwork of Gothic, Cordoba Islamic art style and Jewish. The interior portion is decorated with Mudejar elements and inscriptions, written in Arabic and Hebrew. A trip to the interior gives you a glimpse of the historical background of the Jewish culture and Sephardic culture.

However with the expulsion of Jews from Spain in 1492, the synagogue had been used to serve various purposes like a hermitage or military barracks.

  • Converted to a museum. Nice detail and artefacts inside, worth a visit.

  • Nice place with live music. Full of people if free

  • Small but nice and cheap. Free on Saturdays after 14:00, so try aim for that. Some shops for Jewish items in the vicinity.

  • A beautiful building with a sad history. Well preserved and nice small museum. Would have been better if the descriptions were available in English too but we are in Spain.

  • Well decorated interiors with quite a few artefacts although sadly lacking in English language explanations within the display cabinets. There's a small shop selling gifts as you exit. Free entrance on a Sunday :)
