El Tránsito Synagogue (Sinagoga del Tránsito)
Former Spanish capital Toledo was famously once home to three diverse and thriving cultures: Catholics, Muslims and Jews. And there’s no better place to discover the rich history of the latter than by visiting the city’s El Tránsito Synagogue (Sinagoga del Tránsito). It was constructed in the 14th century, and is now home to the Sephardic Museum (Museo Sefardí) featuring Jewish art, objects and history.
The synagogue was founded and financed by Sameul ha-Leví, after whom it was originally named. Following the expulsion of the Jews, however, it eventually served other purposes, such as a military barracks, and as an church called Nuestra Señora del Tránsito, hence the synagogue’s current name. What you’ll find here today is a splendid, albeit small example of Mudéjar-style architecture, and, beyond that, an educational and meaningful link to the city’s Jewish past.
