This is an amazing place but the best way to see it is with Andrea Pezzini who is the director of the synagogue. He runs the tour agency ArtificiS. He speaks English, French and Italian so that covers a lot of possibilities! He knows all about the discovery of the synagogue and tells the story so you can follow the excitement of the peeling back of the onion layers as they unearthed different parts. He is passionate about rediscovering what the life of the Jews was like at the time of this synagogue.
By the way, he also gives a great tour of the town and makes it fascinating. We weren’t sure we cared about visiting the town but he made it so interesting. And he is very reasonably priced.
Úbeda ended up being one of our favorite places in Spain, and that’s after hitting the main attractions of Seville, Córdoba and Granada. It was such a lovely, quiet town - we felt like we had discovered a special little jewel.
