Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Castile-La Mancha / Province of Toledo / Toledo / Synagogue of Saint Mary the White
Now a museum, Synagogue of Saint Mary the White features stunning architecture and decor. The interior of this former house of Jewish worship is divided by impressive archways, while the floor is lined with decorative tiles. However, round windows lend the building the typical European look of most synagogues. Small art display and carvings are worth a look. The site can be difficult to find, so be prepared to ask for directions or take a map with you. Be sure to bring your camera.

One of the most singular interiors I have ever experienced. Is it a mosque? Wait, it's Catholic Church with sublime Moorish design? I'm so confused? Don't be! Just be amazed and enjoy the sublime, calming beauty of this architectural wonder that began life as a synagogue. It's a dazzling jewel, a fever dream of light and lightness, a place to contemplate and rejoice. One of Toledo's most beautiful sites, don't miss it.
The name of Sinagoga de Santa María La Blanca is somewhat confusing. Here is what is supposed to be a Jewish synagogue with a very Catholic name. Like many other places in Toledo, what was once a synagogue or a mosque is now a church. Sinagoga Ben Shoshan is the original name of the place. It's a very simple building, but the inside is quite attractive. It only uses 2 colors, namely white and gold, a striking combination. Santa Maria La Blanca is one of 7 places that you can visit on the tourism bracelet of Toledo. The price is 10 Euros. It's valid for 3 days. A wise investment.
