It is only one room and free. It is one of the 3 remaining synagogues from pre-explusion. Most well preserved with Jewish history. Really phenomenal how well it stands, and with the verses along the walls.

When visiting The Mezquita. also pay a visit to The Synagogue, which is interesting. It isn't very big, but has been well preserved. There is still a lot of intricate engraving on the stone arches.

A pre inquisition synagogue from before the Expulsion by Ferdinand and Isabella and the Catholic Church. Like most religious buildings this one was requisitioned by the Church and traces of its past were covered up. Its real purpose was only discovered by accident and now the building stands as a monument to the extinguished Jews of Spain. It is a... More

Built in 1315, the Sinagoga de Córdoba is one of three surviving synagogues and the only one in the historic Jewish Quarter of Córdoba. It was built in the mujahar style with a courtyard and a hallway, followed by the prayer room. On the eastern side of the hall is a staircase that leads to the women's gallery that overlooks...

Not much has been maintained of Jewish life in Spain but the synagogue is an important reminder of a past poorly documented.

After the Reconquista, Jews in Spain were offered Christian conversion or expulsion. Many converted, but the descendants of the converts were then subjected to the persecution of the Inquisition. Finally, in 1492, the Jews of SPain were expelled by the Catholic monarchs. If you know before the terrible history of religious persecution, seeing this small surviving synagogue is fairly profound.

It doesn't take long to visit this small 14th C. synagogue but it's worth a stop as you're traversing the Street of the Jews. It is one of three synagogues that are preserved in Spain. It is built in the Mudejar style with a small square room, a balcony for the women and with Hebrew writing on the upper walls.... More

For anyone who knows and understands what happened to the Jewish community during the Inquisition, it is really important to visit this synagogue, one of only three in Spain that survives. It is a modest building that once served as the spiritual home for a vibrant community.
