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

I had been to Cordoba previously and had not toured this house-why? It is now my 2nd favorite site in Cordoba behind the Mezquita. The information contained here requires considerable time to read it all, (3 hours would be ideal). So valuable. :-) Thank you to the staff here too who are a wealth of information and great launguage skills.

We spent a fascinating hour plus in this well laid out and informative place. The two men on duty spoke good English and were knowledgeable about the sad history of the Jews in this delightful city. The shop was filled with many items of judaica not overly expensive. Well worth a visit, Jewish or not.

Visited Casa de Sefarad with our grown children. It was interesting and informative. Nearby is the Synagoge which is also worth a visit.

We attended for an hour a flamenco traditional trio (singer Mercedes Cortes, Guitarra Pedro Sanchez and Dance Marta Arias ) in the patio of the museum. It was really great, mystical experience (no fotos, cameras alloweded).

We happened to be there when a local Trio called Taksim, with Alex as the soloist, had a 1 hour performance of Sepharadic songs - it was fabulous - location, music, explanations... it was a journey through the judeo spanish diaspora.

For anyone interested in Jewish History this stop is a must. Much thought and work went into establishing this small museum that was actually once a Jewish family's home before the expulsion.
