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

Fantastic museum in the Jewish Quarter (Juderia). Visit to understand the role that the Jewish community played in Cordoba. Interesting to learn about Maimonides, the great physician and philosopher. The inquisition and women exhibits were also quite emotional. After your visit, walk across the street to the Sinogoga which is one of three remaining preinquisition synagogues (the other two are...

Some interesting artefacts and a reasonable outline of Jewish life in Spain in medieval times. A nice section on Maimonides and also one on the Inquisition.

Our hotel was on the Plaza de Maimonides. As a student I learned about the philosopher and was eager to find out more. We first went to a gift/book store. The person there was very nice and gave us good information. We then visited the Casa de Sefarad, which is a small but beautiful museum. The staff person warmly welcomed... More

We arrived in Cordoba on a late Saturday afternoon in early May and since our hotel was close to the Cordoba Synagogue, we decided to visit it as our first stop in Cordoba. After exiting, we spotted the Casa de Sefared and decided to take a tour. It was an interesting glimpse of Jewish life before the Inquisition and as... More
