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.

This museum was the highlight of my visit to Cordoba. We were met at the door by a charming and well informed young man who told us about the museum and gave us some information sheets. Each room told us so much I wish I could remember it all, as part of my general knowledge. It was a fine introduction... More

The museum is well organized and quite informative. The story of the sephardic community's departure from Spain after the collapse of the Moors' empire in Spain is in fact a part of world history that goes well beyond Spain. But much of the information in the museum may be of more interest to those with closer ties to the sephardic... More

fascinating tribute to the Sephardi Jewish community that did so much for Spain hundreds of years ago. staff were genuinely interested in the subject and wanted to make sure that everyone understood what this was about. Really worthwhile spending up to an hour here.

The extensive information in each room made this little museum one of the most interesting we visited in Spain. Clear display panels (including equal access in English) were highly informative and the artifacts shown really illuminated this culture. The tranquil courtyard was also lovely. Well worth your time.
