This is a museum of the history of Jews. The second floor has interesting information about the in this area pre-Inquisition and post Expulsion. The first floor has some information about Judaism, although as a Jew, I did not agree with a lot of their facts and understanding about the Jewish religion. I did appreciate the room with the list... More

I'm a teacher of religion, so I was really excited to visit the Casa de Sefarad. However, it fell a bit flat for me. It was a lot of printed informational exhibits, and the artifacts of Jewish life were mostly from the 17th century. I much preferred my visit to the old synagogue. Nevertheless, the admission fee was fairly cheap,... More

Very well presented, comprehensive history of the life of the Spanish Jews before and during the Inquisition. The guides are very knowledgable about the material exhibited.

Not much to see, but still worth the visit for 15-20 min to get a glimpse on the history of Jews in Andalusia.

We visited on a very hot day in July. The summer months are classed as low season due to the heat so it's a good time to visit as Cordoba can be tremendously busy in the cooler months. There was a free tour at 1230 and the guide was excellent. There is a small charge to enter the Casa around... More

This site houses significant information and illustrations through picures and objects which illustrates the role of the jewish people mainly during the christian reconquest. If you happen to be visiting on a given Sunday at noon, you will benefit from the guided tour of the director, at no extra charge. It is an interesting perspective which in neglected by mainstream...

This house, just in front of the old synagogue, in calle Judios, has several rooms with exhibits of materials used by jews dating from the XIV century. It must be visited if you are interested in history.

Beautifully arranged and well explained in Spanish and English artifacts and documents. I walked out with new knowledge about Sephardic history, traditions, and culture.

An interesting museum type house explaining the Jewish history of Cordoba and Spain. Opposite the old Synagogue. A good selection of artefacts with text in Spanish and English (handouts in other languages available) They do guided tours in different languages at different times. This is included in the price. Personally, I felt the tour was not really needed - the... More
