Give a good overview of the roll of the inquisition in the destruction of jewish cultural in Spain and also the historic context of Cordobera's most famous son. Definitely worth the entry fee.

The general Judaica displays were average but there were two excellent galleries focusing (separately) on the life and teachings of Maimonides and the Spanish Inquisition. Very worthwhile visit combined with the Sinagoga on the opposite side of the street.

This museum was on several different floors although it is small . The link between the different displays was hard to follow and the labelling in English was dry and complicated if your knowledge of Spanish history and the Jewish faith is limited . Not especially great

This is an interesting view, but can be a bit massante. Nothing that is unmissable, unless you have time available.

We bought tickets for the flamenco show at Casa de Sefarad when we were passing by. Got there early, got good seats, sat back and enjoyed this impassioned performance of flamenco song, guitar and dance.

Really well done museum, in a gem of an ancient house, informative and interesting commentary in both Spanish and English. If into the spirit and feel of the area a must.

The exhibits and staff are very informative and the tour is a must. Alex provides vivid explanations and ends the tour with several songs in Ladino, the language of Sephardic Jews.

Fascinating look at an important part of Cordoba's -- and Spain's -- history. Very helpful staff. Good, interesting exhibits, with lots of explanation.

Lovely small gift shop selling Judaica. Very helpful shop attendant. The silver pieces are made in Cordoba by a local artist. We bought a beautiful tree of life pendant and a mezzuzah. Unfortunately we didn't have time to visit the museum itself.
