Finding this place was simply wonderful. I visited Toledo to know more about The Templar Order, but I found much more, even a Sephardi Museum. Peace and history cover every single corner of this place. Finding out more about Sephardi Jews has been very touching. Highly recommended if this is the kind of things you want to know about when you are on holiday. There is a shop, like in every museum, but in this one you will find food and typical Sephardi desserts which are delicious by the way.
Interesting museum telling about history of Jewish people, his customs and way of life in Sefarad (Jewish name of Spain). The only problem is very small letters in the show-cases and the position of pieces is uncomfortable to see them.
