This hasn't had Jews since the last of the 15th cent but is filled with gift shops and some Jewish themed stores and museum with synagogue built in 1300s.

Narrow streets on the old street plan, but a lot of tourist tat and junk food shops. Opposite the rare surviving synagogue is a small museum which (a) gives a real sense of a traditional house and (b) illustrates the craft silver thread work for which jewish community was famed.

Lovely quirky Spanish streets somewhat spoilt by touristy restaurants and lots and lots of gift shops all (largely) selling the same junk. Occasionally a burst of Flamenco lifted the atmosphere but really just something to do to fill the time waiting for the cathedral to open.

I liked everything, everyone is nice in the restaurants and the places of interest. I loved one artistic store with a famous patio. The store sells beautiful creative jewelry.

It is difficult to imagine while travelling around the narrow streets and alley ways that Muslims, Christians and Jews lived side by side for a long time. In the Jewish quarter to see an ancient synagogue , which the Christians converted to their own use for a time. It is a reminder of the "shifting sands" of History in days... More

We walked a good portion of the Quarter. The areas north and west of the Mezquita are twisted and very touristy. The area east of the Mezquita are is less so. Like many quarters in Spain, they have lost their historic nature. Not many buildings are reflective of cultural zenith. Worth wandering if you have time.

Nearly synonymous with Cordoba's 'historic center', the Jewish quarter features one of Europe's oldest synagogues, many stores vending Jewish-themed items, even Kosher menus... but it is woven into the multi-religion fabric & history of the area (and, unfortunately, the Inquisition).

On the edge of the Mosquita, this is a lively tourist location with many gift and jewellery shops. There are many bars and restaurants also, so no shortage of places for refreshment

The Jewish quarter of Cordoba is beautiful. Narrow streets and lots of character. The history of Jews and Muslims in this areas is sad because of the Spanish Inquisition.
