    Private Tour of the Úbeda Synagogue

    The medieval Synagogue of the Water is a fascinating refurbished synagogue in Ubeda, Jaén

There are several rooms: the Hall of Witnesses, the Hall of Three Cultures, a bodega, a kitchen, the Gallery of Women and ritual bath or mikwe, situated underground. One of the most extraordinary features of the synagogue is the Puerta de Alma or the Door of the Soul, where the rabbi would enter into the synagogue. It was restored by a local stonemason and student in the age of its discovery. The result is a wonder of heavy stone and wood with intricate designs signifying a place of transit from the material world to the spiritual one. Enjoy a detailed tour of the space and get to know the culture that thrived in Spain so many centuries ago.
