Narrow, winding, white-washed streets, leading to shady alleys and pretty courtyards, the Juderia has retained its historic atmosphere and is a pleasant place to wander, shop or eat.

We were here at the beginning of March, so the weather is warming up and the tourists are coming out. Along with them are the gypsies. They are on you like flies. We found that it wasn't so much in February, so this was a slap in the face. This quarter is pretty but we really didn't see much that... More

The synagogue is very small and not well preserved and there is very little to see that would make you think it is the Jewish section. For the most part, the Jews have not been here since the 1500's.

A wander around this beautiful and quaint area reveals little hidden gems of buildings and stories. As is often the case in history there is a down side when its realised that after the Arabs were defeated and expelled it was the turn of the Jewish population who were evicted in 1492 and the properties taken over by the Christians...

While visiting this nice quarter I feel like in Jerusalem Via Dolorosa. Souvenir shops all over are not exactly how those places looked like. We come to meet history not tourist commerce. Nevertheless, the Jewish quarter trip is a glipse into a hunted people past "normal life" guided by intelectual giants like Maimonide family. Ironically, Maimonide's statue has a face... More

The Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492, but as the site of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions for centuries, the City of Cordoba has admirably preserved much of its historic center. That is evident in buildings and in cuisine. Walking around in the narrow streets of the old Jewish Quarter is an experience to remember.

It is quite a walk from centre city with some steep gradients. The only way around here is to walk those steep steps and roads. It is totally worth the effort! Stunning and mesmerizing!
