It was a last minute decision to visit this private museum and we are so glad we did. The restoration is very well done and the history of the place is fascinating.

A fascinating look into the "secret" life of the Jews of Ubeda at the times when they were persecuted and forced underground. The underground synagogue and its accompanying rooms and wells were intriguing.

A must see in Ubeda! The site of this museum was discovered only in 2010. It was used by the Jewish community for hundreds and perhaps even thousands of years and was abandoned likely some time after the time of the Spanish Inquisition. The deep...More

The site was revealed as part of a plan to rebuild an old building for flats. Has been curated very well and makes a worthwhile visit. Is in the old centre so not a problem to visit.

We had an enthusiastic guide who is involved in the recovery project for this synagogue, and it was great to hear how it was discovered. Interesting and well presented although small so beware going with large groups.

Must visit ! It's great that Spain is reclaiming so much of its Jewish history. This is a very unique say well worth the visit.

Worth the visit to Ubeda. There is a printed booklet in English, with information about each room. It was surprising to see the inquisitor's room in the house of a rabbi.

A natural collection of water, as in a spring, is the best source for the ritual bath. During the time of the Temple in Jerusalem, a ritual bath (in Hebrew, mikveh or mikvah) was used for immersion before entering the... More
