I love to see old historic things, but this is special to see. They have a guide who will give you a 10 minute breakdown of the history, the collections and general information about the synagogue and it's discovery. This is a very simple visit, two rooms, but enjoyed it a lot.
This tiny museum, once part of the main synagogue before the expulsion of the Jews in the 13th century, is a little snippet of Barcelona's past. The brief explanation of the history is worth your time, then a short look at the structure and exhibits. This does not take up a lot of tourist time but is worth it for... 更多
After walking through the ancient Jewish section of Barcelona I found myself outside the door of the Sinagoga Mayor or the Major Synagogue of Barcelona....A misnoma if a person expected to see a grand cathedral.....Actually it is no more than a "cavern" like room under the street level. The interior was sparsely furnished except for the Ark, the Torah and... 更多
This is a remarkable little bit of Barcelona history. Tucked away in a tiny street in the old city you enter through a low insignificant door back in time to the expulsion of the Jews from Spain. The short talk was informative and enlightening. Visit to help preserve this piece of history.

Just two rooms in a building in a side street, and down some steep stairs - for a 2.50 euro donation you can see the excavations of the former synagogue which was on the site, and enjoy a 15-minute presentation about the history of the Jewish faith in Barcelona over the centuries. Worth a half hour in your schedule.
It's a nice effort that they've tried to do something with this venue but there's really my a lot to see. I entered the building / shop and asked where the synagogue was before being told "this is it". I then had to pay 2.50€ to enter the second room which was about the same size but contains the "temple"... 更多
I first learned about this synagogue when touring Sandman Free Walking tour, but we just passed by. So we decided to return, to learn more about its history. The synagogue is small and there are not a lot of objects inside, but the visitors are offered a 15 - 20 minutes explanation about how it was found, what hapenned to... 更多
