Sinagoga del Tránsito Review

Financed by Samuel Levi, this 14th-century rectangular synagogue is plain on the outside, but the inside walls are embellished with intricate Mudejar decoration, as well as Hebraic inscriptions glorifying God, Peter the Cruel, and Levi himself. It's said that Levi imported cedars from Lebanon for the building's construction, à la Solomon when he built the First Temple in Jerusalem. Adjoining the main hall is the Museo Sefardí, a small but excellent museum of Jewish culture in Spain.

    The better of the two synagogues

    The synagogue seems plain on the inside, but look upward at the top wall adornment, which is intricate and lovely. The small adjoining museum is attractive and makes this a decent value. It's the more interesting of the two Toledo synagogues to see.
