Take your time walking through these ancient streets. Every side lane has a few interesting things to sneak a peak at. You can walk into random private gardens and courtyards and find some interesting small shops and cafes.

The Juderia with its Sephardic Museum (in a restored house of the quarter) and synagogue are not to be missed, if you are interested in the history of the Jews in Spain. This synagogue has more remaining details than those of Toledo, which we also visited a few days ago. This was the birthplace of Maimonides (Rambam), Averroes and Seneca.... More

It was interesting enough to walk through the former Jewish quarter. It is interesting enough, but really no different from similar quarters in any number of cities. The shops could be a tourist trap.

An interesting area giving some idea of the Jewish history of the City. The synagogue had some original plasterwork with Hebrew writings. The nearby Sephardi museum had a lot of pieces pertaining to the periods but there was no feeling of authenticity of life in the area....just a mish mash of items. The narrow streets had little to show the... More

Mostly people seem to visit here for a couple of days but we knew we wanted to incorporate the magnificent Patio Festival which, I have to say, was wonderful. The Jewish Quarter is so full of history and beautiful narrow streets and old houses. Our hotel was within this area which made it so easy for us to walk around... More

Everything about Cordoba, Spain was interesting and beautiful. Walking through the winding, narrow streets that comprised the Jewish Quarter and even getting lost was and adventure. We loved the white homes, some open patios and the Synagogue. There's not much to write other than to say take advantage of seeing this area of history while you're in Cordoba.

Behind the Mezquita which is known as a Cathedral to some and a Mosque to others lies the Jewish Quarter known as the Juderia. It really is a mass of roads and lanes all covered in whitwash which is very easy to get lost in which is all part of the fun. The area is full of very good restaurants... More

This quarter is mostly narrow, winding streets with old, whitewashed houses, most with hanging flower pots on the outside walls. It also has the synagogue used by the Jewish population before they were expelled during the Inquisition.
