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

When you first see this building, all you think it is is a house. But once inside, you see the hidden beauty, the mix of Jewish and then Christian influence. It is amazing how the community was able to survive as well as their place of worship...

The synagogue of Cordoba, located in the heart of the Jewish quarter, is really beautiful and charming. The state of preservation is good enough, considering that the temple was built more than 700 years ago. However if you want to know more about the Jewish in Cordoba and its history, I recommend you buying a book before because there is... More

Tiny little synagogue hidden in the back alleys of the Juderia. One of only 3 left in Spain with the other two in Toledo. The walls coverings were found within the last 100 years when the building was rediscovered after Jews kicked out in 15th century. Even the little women's balcony is beautiful and everything is tiny. The entry is... More

We tried to go to the synagogue while we were in Cordoba, but according to the sign posted it is closed until late September 2014 for restoration work.
