Summary

A fourth synagogue was the Church of the Convent of Dominican nuns at the bottom of San José street. It was compared with the Transit synagogue of Toledo and some even say it was actually Samuel Ha-Levi who ordered its construction, the treasurer of Pedro I and builder of the Toledan synagogue. The convent was founded in 1447 but it was not occupied until forty years later. As regards the old structure of the synagogue, the Mudejar reinforcements of the coffered ceiling can still be recognised.
