This is a gem of a small museum which is almost across the street from the old synagogue. There are Jewish artifacts as well as tells the story of Jewish traditions and the part that they played in the life of this city. The Casa Sefarad shows how it would have been in the 14th century before the Spanish jews... More

How did the community live during Muslim rule? Casa de Sepharad provides (the beginnings of) an answer. Learned more about the inquisition here than anywhere else during our trip. Well done.

Enjoyed the visit myself - found out a lot of new information but you have to be interested in this part of history to go there.

The house that it was in was very interesting but the exhibit left a lot to be desired. Almost all of the exhibits were from Morocco even though the Sefarad were scattered to many countries. I also felt that being a Sephardic Jew myself it would have been nice if they would have told more of the history of that... More

Though small (located in what was a house), this museum of Judeo-Spanish (Sephardic) life is full of interesting information and cultural artifacts.

Interesting descriptions of Sephardic traditions and history in both Spanish and English. The museum hosts allowed us a good 20 min extra after closing time and did not try to urge our departure.

We luckily could take the visit with a Rafael a guide from the museum, who was so kind and explained the history of sefarades in a way that was so useful and everyone enjoyed and was curious about. At the end of the visit we could hear the songs of sefarade women sang by another guide of the museum in... More

As you walk the narrow streets of the Jewish quarter in Cordoba, make sure you visit this museum. Great displays (much of it in English) on Jewish life in this city a 1000 years ago. Great explanation of the Spanish Inquisition. A must visit that is not on everyone's list. You will learn the significant contributions made by the Jews... More

We thanked the staff when we left because we were so impressed with the quality of exhibits in this small museum. It is clearly a labor of love by the group that created it. Originally a Jewish family's house, it now displays an impressive amount of information in a relatively small space. Much is in English. The Casa de Sefarad... More

With a patio seating 50 people, this venue is intimate. At 15€ for a 60-minute performance it is also a really good deal and is devoid of the kind of tourist hype we expected to find in flamenco bars. The performers vary from night to night but when we were there in October 2014 the singer, guitarist, and dancer were... More
