The main town shares the pavement with cars, not here, streets not wide enough. If you enjoy visiting small shops, plenty here to call in.

Visited here on our own a few years ago, went round the same alleys over and over again, not that impressed. This time we were with a local guide saw much more and with a little history made more sense ,instead of just looking like a souvenier and tourist shop area.

A beautiful part of time to wander around for a bit. It occupies a small space very close yo the other attractions. Good for a wander, souvenir shopping and lunch/snack or dinner

Diverse aspects of Jewish life, history & religion are presented in a small but informative space. For a non-Jewish person there were many new insights.

This is where the museums and patios are and right next to the Mezquita they start. The Synogogue was closed for restoration, but was great when I last visited with only the two in Toledo for rivals. It is best in Spring with all the flowers, as in summer you need to keep to the shade.

The most beautiful part of Cordoba old city is the old Jewish Quarter. Very nicely preserved and impressive by its decorative buildings, balconies and patios. Very rich looking. Just remember that these buildings are at least 550 years old, taken that all jews were forced to leave Cordoba at the year of 1492 ! A whole culture that was exiled... More

The old synagogue (La Sinagoga) was closed for renovations when I was in Cordoba, but the streets and sites were well marked, as is appropriate for a center of Jewish and philosophical learning from the Golden Age of cooperation between the Moors and the Jews. The location of Maimonides' home is easy to find, as is the statue to this... More

The Jewish Quarter (Juderia) gives you a good impression of the ancient Arabic style of city building. Very narrow streets. Nice little shop and restaurants.

A lovely location for a nice night out, lots of interesting shops and bars. We discovered a lot of great Tapas bars by just walking around here. Also good for late night coffees or ice creams
