Gratis in Barcelona!… Synagogue by Bed and Breakfast in Barcelona

The persecution suffered by the Jewish society caused the decline of the largest synagogue in Barcelona and its community.

The synagogue is located in the heart of the Jewish quarter inside the Gothic Quarter. For years it was a forgotten place and even once it served as a warehouse store for electrical products.

In the 20th century, a study showed that originally the use of that small shop was in fact the main Jewish temple! And by surprise it was not only the oldest Jewish temple in Spain but in all Europe.

The main façade of this temple looks to the Jerusalem. Through a strange, even funny, small door you have access to the interior. After a profound reconstruction we now can see the ruins and a glass surface allows us to walk around above them. Also you can see the iron seven-arms chandelier “menorah” and the old scriptures from the holy book (“Torah”).

It’s a tiny place, usually well visited that really is worthwhile a short stop!

Free entrance: Every day
Location: Marlet street number 5, Barcelona (view map)
Metro: L3 (Liceu) or L4 (Jaume I)
