A synagogue

One of the buildings that caught my eye in the visit to Toledo was this Jewish synagogue of the 12th century, which from the 15th century, after expelling the Jews, was used as a church and changed its name to Synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca.

I’m not going to lie to you: I read it in the pamphlet they gave us to go through all the monuments and buildings of the city, tourist mode ON.

The truth is that this is a beautiful building —at least on the inside— and that often makes me wonder if the buildings of our time will be visited from here to a few hundreds of years by tourists of the future, although something tells me the answer will be a simple ‘no’.
