  • Great piece of history, free admission You can see the history of Jewish existence in Spain during the moorish rule. I wish that they keep it as Synagogue and not putting the bell and cross above the roof, just to keep the original Synagogue as is
  • It's a very nice synagogue museum that shows the history of the Jews that used to be in that area, if you are a student bring your student ID to get in for free.
