In this magnificent Renaissance town it was quite a surprise to come across this amazing recent discovery. The synagogue has been beautifully restored and gives a fascinating insight to life in 13th Century Ubeda and Jewish history. The informative tour is in Spanish but easy-to-read English language booklets provide everything the non-Spanish speaker needs to know. Highly recommended.

I didn’t expect much and was pleasantly surprised at the history behind this synagogue. Walk they tour is in Spanish only but they offer an English guide pamphlet of ~10 pages with pictures and commentary to follow along easily moving from room to room.

I’ve been to a fair number of Jewish historical sites in Europe and this is one of the most interesting, not least because of the story of its rediscovery. Tours are given only in Spanish - which I hope can be remedied in future - but English speakers are given a folder with complete information. The guide was very vivacious and conveyed a lot of enthusiasm for the building.

Unbelievable to think that this building was only discovered about 15 years ago. An amazing insight into life in Úbeda in the 13/14 th centuries, before the majority of the existing historical monuments were built. Entry is restricted to about 20 people at a time with a Spanish guide. Translated booklets are available to use during the tour which lasts 30/40 minutes. Highly recommended.

A guided tour takes you all through the "sinagoga de agua" discovered only a few years ago when they started to build apartments there. Our guid was excellent, and she explained everything well. Definitely worth visiting
