To experience ancient Spain a visit to Cordoba should not be missed. So many people visit 'The Costas' and forget about inland Spain. With a great train network it is easity to get here and is well worth a visit. 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

For a late morning or early evening stroll, enjoy this area to pick up gifts or simply to browse. It's a nice, relaxing experience in what is a truly wonderful town.

Spain did its very best to obliterate 1600 years of Jewish presence on the Iberian coast, so even there is a museum and you can visit an old synagogue (turned into church), there is really no trace of anything Jewish. The museum pieces are brought in from other countries to teach about Judaism.

Nice stroll along narrow streets. Pleasant to walk and imagine others that have also traveled these streets. Avoid Spain in the heat of Summer!

The Jewish quarter is full of old cobbled streets, old buildings and patios. Very nice to walk around. There are a lot of tourists stores and the area is pretty touristic, but I didn't mind and even scored some nice souvenirs and beautiful earrings.

We walked this area during the afternoon and later in the night. Shops and restaurants throughout so there is always something around each corner it seems.

When you live in the big city, it's nice to go back in time, walk through the winding narrow lanes, only for 2 people, some even have to be single file. We visited the nice garden full of hanging pots filed with flowers, and a nicely decorated fountain. They are very well maintained. In Plaza de Tiberíades, there is a... More

Typical Juderia formed by narrow streets. Not as big as the one in Sevilla, but nice to walk around. Several shops and bars in the way.

The area is interesting and great to walk around. It is very touristy but if you have this expectation then you won't be disappointed. A lovely maze of streets with some beautiful silver work which is what Cordoba is famous for. Opposite the Synagogue there is a wonderful artisan's courtyard that I would suggest a visit is very worthwhile.
