EUROSET PROOF 2021

Puerta del Sol, Toledo

Puerta del Sol is a city gate of Toledo, Spain, built in the late 14th century by the Knights Hospitaller.

The medallion above the arch of the gate depicts the ordination of the Visigothic Ildephonsus, Toledo's patron saint. The name of the gate comes from the sun and the moon that were once painted on either side of this medallion.

This gate was named because of its orientation to the east, where the sun always rises.

 

Synagogue of El Tránsito

The Synagogue of El Tránsito (Spanish: Sinagoga del Tránsito), also known as the Synagogue of Samuel ha-Levi is a historic synagogue, church, and Sephardic museum in Toledo, Spain. It was built as an annex of the palace of Samuel ha-Levi Abulafia, treasurer to King Peter of Castile, in 1357. 

The synagogue was converted into a church after the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492. It was briefly used as military barracks during the Napoleonic Wars of the early 1800s. It became a museum in 1910. Today it is formally known as the Sephardi Museum. 

The building is known for its rich stucco decoration, its Mudejar style, and its women's gallery.
