We took a slow stroll through the Juderia and ventured into a few art and craft places as well as the synagogue, converted churches (from mosques) and other tourist attractions. Allow a day to absorb the feel and atmosphere.

The quarter is quaint and has lots of narrow streets and little shops while the star of the area is the interesting synagogue.

Very close to the Mezquita area, a beautifully preserved and breathing history district. There are numerous shops and eateries around to do something aside from culture only.

It is amazing to imagine what it was like those centuries ago when the 3 religions and cultures cohabited and coexisted peacefully and to each others benefit. What developed there and then as you wander the narrow streets in the present and imagine them in the past (without all the souvenir shops) and the events that transpired there.

I have learned so much on this trip on how much the jewish peoples contributed to the cities in Spain before their persecution by the Inquisition. In fact this as well as other Juderias or Jewish Quarters, seem to be the most well preserved and elegant in the historic cascos. It is a tribute to a great people to walk... More

If You like narrow streets with the atmospfere of the freat past enchanted in the buildings, have a walk in Juderia. You can find a synagogue, an old bazaar and the monuments of the wise men who were born there and were living in ecumenic environment sharing their thoughts.

I have lived in Cordoba for over 8 years and still love to lose myself in the small, winding streets around the cathedral mosque. There are some great bars and restaurants (I recommend visiting Los patios de la marquesa where if you're lcky you'll coincide with some live flamenco). The quarter is steeped with history from Roman times and no... More

In so many European cities we see the splendors of the cathedrals and Christian arts and artifacts. And in so many cities we see the reminders of the devastations to the Jews. This is another sad reminder in an absolutely lovely city.

The synagogue here was left as it was, which is not typical in Spain. It is small, but has ancient Hebrew writing around the arches. The Casa de Sefarad may or may not have been owned by a converso (a Jew who converted in order to stay alive). It contains old letters, explanations of life during the Inquisition, and old... More

This is the oldest part of Cordoba. Its narrow streets with whitewashed houses surround the Great Mosque and are home to numerous jewellery workshops, small boutiques and best restaurants in the city. It is also here that you can find one of a few preserved synagogues in Spain.
