Sinagoga

Not for every taste, this place is more about the history of it than the architecture, so many people might find boring. Recommended!

This is a simple yet beautiful, one room building. It is free for EU citizens and €.30 for others. A very important site to visit, especially because of the expulsion of Jews from Spain in 1492.

The building is beautiful and well preserved. There are some nice inscriptions in Hebrew and some decorations. The only thins missing is an audio guide, that could add some explanations and interesting facts. It would really add value to the experience.

hard to find, but worth it when you get there. When you understand the history of the persecution of the Jews within Spain as a whole, the significance of the sight, is overwhelming

Not worth going out of your way to visit, but this single room from pre1200 has been discovered and restored to show how it would have looked 800 years ago. In contrast to the enormous cathedral / mosque this gave a feel for how the towns few Jewish residence would have met and worshipped together.

We're Not Jewish, but as history buffs we wanted to visit one of 3 oldest surviving Synagogues in Europe; but waiting tourists thronged the narrow street outside with their lecturing guides; on a winter weekday... so we couldn't get past the entryway (but its free, IF you can get in ;)... nearby shops feature Jewish-themed articles catering to all budgets...

You should see this as it is an important part of the interesting Jewish quarter. It has been restored so you get a very good impression of how it used to be. There is some explanation of the Hebrew writing on the wall in English and Spanish.

Built 700 years ago, this small synagogue contains the basic elements of worship in ancient times: a sanctuary, an upstairs women's gallery and an entry courtyard. Fragments of Hebrew writing are in place along with good explanations of their origin and meaning in English. There is no entry fee so it can be a busy place, but you can still... More

The Jewish Quarter in Cordoba is a charming place. It's narrow winding lanes, enchanting patios and plazas and ancient but well restored homes give it a pleasant aura. It is here too that we visit the ancient synagogue. It’s a small one almost as if part of a home. The space is limited, so only a small group is allowed... More
