The museum show us jewish culture with the synagogue as a center for the jewish community. Also very interesting is the room about the Inquisition and how this affected the jews of Cordoba. Also I must say that... More

Beautiful courtyard house turned into a museum of everyday life for Spehardic Jews living in Cordoba before the Catholic expulsion of Jews and Muslims. Also gives information on the famous philosopher Maimonedes. The last room gives background on the horrors of the Inquisition.

I took a group of 50 students and we spent an entire day here. Exceptional guides who knew their history and were able to relate the Spanish Jewish experience in a personal and existential manner. Highly recommend visiting!

This is a private museum of Cordoba's Jewish heritage and the life of Maimonides in particular. The museum is small and you leave with a sense that too much has been left untold... On some evenings, Casa de Sefarad offers flamenco shows. I highly recommend visiting the museum during the day and returning to the show later. Important! Preorder your... More

The casa is in a very very nice patio pretty much opposite the sinagoga. Every single room is dedicated to a sub-theme - the one which gives you the most news is the one about the sefardi women. I find it quite courgeous to dedicate a room to the inquisition, it gives an insight on a dark era which is... More

We weren't looking for it, but came upon this hidden gem in the narrow streets near the Synagogue. The artifacts were beautiful and the historical context and explanations were interesting, informative and concise. Excellent context for the history of the Jewish people in the region. Loved it.
