Stop by the synogogue - but then go another block and take this tour to learn what life was like for the Jews in Cordoba and their history. Everything was nicely displayed and explained - very moving, a must see. The money goes to support the synogogue and education in Cordoba.

This is just across from the synagogue so leave time to do both sights. Very well done and especially the room with information about the Inquisition.

This was once the house of a Sephardic Jewish family many years ago....it has now been turned into a "museum" to offer you a glimpse in the life of a family many years ago. Well worth visiting.

It is not a musem in a traditional way it is more a niche approach museum. My visit was interesting (don't miss the sinagogue nearby as well) and informative. The young man from the reception also sang for us few ladino songs. The visit to Cordoba can not be complete without a tour through a Golden Age of Judaism in... More

This small museum in the Jewish quarter was very interesting. We stopped in after seeing the synagogue across the street. The displays were well done and explanations in English were very much appreciated. If you're wandering the area, this place is worth going in to have a look for a small entrance fee.

The Synagogue across the way was closed & we wandered into Casa de Sefarad instead. We are glad we did. The presentations are well done. We learned a lot.

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
