Without a doubt, the Jewish Quarter of Toledo was the most influential in medieval times and today still holds an important place in Sephardic culture on the Iberian Peninsula. Mandatory visits include: the Synagogue of El Tránsito, the Synagogue of Santa María la Blanca and the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes.

Synagogue of El Tránsito or of Samuel Leví. A treasurer of Pedro I, King of Castile, misnamed "the Cruel One". It is the most beautiful existing example of Mudejar art in Toledo (closed on Mondays).
Formerly the Main Synagogue in Toledo until it was converted into a church at the end of the 14th century.
Located in the Jewish Quarter. A visit here is essential to understanding the connection between the Catholic Monarchs (the monastery was created as their burial site), and the last moments experienced by the Jewish community in Spain before their expulsion by the aforementioned monarchs.
Tickets to monuments (around 10 euros) and taxi for the panoramic (13 euros) if required.
The explanations will be focused on the Sephardic heritage in Spain and Toledo in particular.
The Jewish Quarter is on one side of the old town, but on our way we will pass by some important monuments such as the Cathedral of Toledo or Santo Tomé church in case the client would be interested on visiting other important monuments in the city.
