Synagogue Of El Transito - Review
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.

Synagogue Of El Transito, Toledo Reviews
Nice place to visit, we took the English audio guide, at a certain point you find it very exhausting. It was very interesting to see the graves with Hebrew inscription on it. The shapes and changes of the building were very noticeable, at the top of large Hall there are still Arabic words (probably Quran). There's a presentation about the Jews in Israel at the women's floor, a very biased and somewhat narrow view of our lives in Israel, not sure what was the purpose of this presentation, it was also shot in the 80s or 90s on some very old screens, we didn't understand the necessity of all this, the visitors don't fully grasp the Israeli experience, I wish they could find a better way to introduce Israel and Judaism.
Very beautiful museum. It was free after 2pm on Saturday when we went, so there were a lot of people visiting. There were laminated papers wit information for non-Spanish speakers, but it was just for each room and not each item in the room.
Unfortunately it was closed on the Monday we went (and all Mondays from Nov to Feb). Free entry sat after 2pm & all day Sunday.
Converted to a museum. Nice detail and artefacts inside, worth a visit.
Worth a visit as a part of appreciating the varied history of Toledo
