it is nice to wander around and see old houses, narrow streets, statues and monuments, patios with flowers and beautiful terraces for refreshing stops in the shade in the overwhelming Cordoban heat. A big minus: the Synagogue was closed until September!

What an interesting day! The Jewish Quarter is somewhere not to be missed. Just a wonderful labyrinth of walkways, filled with restaurants and bars - all serving excellent food. Great photo opportunities too!

There is a Casa de Juderia that is easy to find. You can visit and see some displays. We watched a flamenco performance in the evening. Worth a visit.

A fantastic contrast to the magnificence of the Mezquite. Narrow winding streets. Great place just to stroll round, but can get very crowded.

it was wonderful to see how Jewish people lived peacefully under Islamic rule, and prospered and played an important part of the social mesh and enlightenment of Andalucía. Unfortunately like the Muslims they also suffered under the inquisition and were forced to either abandon their faith or homes and properties and be exiled.

Even in the midday heat it is worth walking around this area. The narrow streets mean that there is always shade and there are numerous pavement-side tabernas where a cool beer can refresh you.

Ancient buildings from the Moors and Romans to explore and lovely old narrow streets in the historic centre/Juderia giving a... More

Attractive location with narrow streets and a few surprises tucked within. There are many opportunities for photographs and numerous small restaurants.There is an interesting monument to Maimonides, an early Sephardic Jewish philosopher, astronomer, and physician. There is also a monument to Mohamed al-Gafequi, one of the early eye physicians who was a specialist in cataract operations. And, for the most... More
