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

My husband and I felt like we learned a ton about the the history of the Jewish community in Córdoba, but also about the Jewish religion as a whole. The museum required a significant amount of reading in each room to fully appreciate the artifacts.

We had to wait for an English speaking museum tour guide and this small museum was very crowded with other tour groups, the museum's English speaking guide, Jorhe, was very good but rushed us through what ended up to be a 25 minute tour. Next time we would hire a private guide especially to see the Museum's interesting exhibits about... More

Dropped by after visiting the Sinagoga. The staff were very enthusiastic and friendly in inviting one to go inside and visit. It was not on my original plan in Cordoba but I do not regret getting in. Lots of interesting information. Worth the visit.

Lovely and historically very significant exploring the horrible history of Catholic despotism, domination, exploitation and crielty. The Sephardic Museum in Granada allowed us to have a tour provided by an exceptionally well informed guide who explained much more than could be easily obtained by passive viewing. Strongly recomend that all take that tour.

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
