This area was once the home of many hard working and devout Jews who worships at the synagogue and created fine artifacts etc. They were persecuted and had to flee.

There is not very exceptional about this place - narrow cobble streets flanked by mainly white painted houses and souvenir shops. However everything is clean, peaceful and aesthestically arranged and with a care to every detail. Though the highlight of Cordoba is the Mezquita, this area is also worth the discovery and exploration.

Wonderful medina for strolling around, with some great photo ops. Very clean and tourist friendly, even though it is a "living" medina

If you've seen a medieval town, with narrow old cobbled streets, you've seen La Juderia. Nothing especially spanish from the outside, maybe some (definitely new...) porcelain tiles. If you can, go for a meal at one of the restaurants with inner courtyards - those courtyards are much more interesting than the generic building facades.

The area is most definitely worth a walk-through: twisty side-streets with charming houses and hundreds of gorgeous photo-opportunities. There are quite a few shops and lots of good restaurants in the area as well.

Charming area of Cordoba to wander around in and get lost! Took the Rick Steve's 10 point scavenger hunt and found all of them! Great area for beautiful photos, and many charming little haunts to stop in and explore along with some lovely patios. Great way to enjoy Cordoba.

We stayed in the Juderia and loved exploring its narrow, twisting lanes that were often too narrow for cars. This is where the interesting cultural sites are located.

Synagogue is much visited now (when we first saw it 25 years ago, we were the only people in there...) but still atmospheric. Go early perhaps. It closes on Mondays!! Be warned. Very good to pair a visit with a visit to the Sarphadic house opposite, a brilliant introduction to the history of the Sarphadic jews in Cordoba - very... More

Pleasant enough but unfriendly doorkeeper at the synagogue, so OK for a walk through but don't linger!
