Across from one of the only ancient synagogues left in the area (Spain !) the house and its contents try to express the co-existence of the people in the area + the inevitable breakdown around the Inquisition period.

This small museum highlights the significance and contributions of the Jewish (specifically Sephardic) community in Spain and the Mediterranean world more broadly. They do great work with limited material artifacts.

This small museum is full of interesting information about a subject I hadn't heard much about in Spain. It is a beautiful building that is fully stocked with well written information, both in in English and in Spanish. We took the guided tour and it was great. The guide is enthusiastic and respectful. He explains many interesting facts about the... More

Cordoba was a city where religions lived in peace. And a important community was the Jewish one Casa de Sefarad will give you an insight in the life of the Jews in Cordoba and some understanding in what was the contribution of the Jews to the life of Cordoba.

This place has interesting dishes, costumes and Sabbath accessories from the Sephardi heritage. The two story house itself is in a perfect shape and bright with colors. Some of the rooms have English translations, but most do not. Interestingly, in one of the rooms, you can find the excerpts from Maimonides tractate about food diet - what is good and... More

You need to visit La casa Sefarad to understand part of the Sefaradi Jews history. How it all started and later we were made to leave this wonderful place.

Choose sunday! Because the owner will guide you in the visit. Increadible experience! He tells everything about the spanish-jewish history, culture... and music (he sings!) It will last around one hour and half. I recommend you to go and see the details of each room. I would like to have studied a little more to have explored his knowledge. After... More

The museum was small but bigger than the one in Sevilla. However the guide in Sevilla made that experience special. There was no guide in Córdoba. Also we went on a day when the synagogue was closed. Check their calendar and website.

Whether or not you have Jewish roots, come visit this small, quaint yet extremely informative museum on Spain and Córdoba's rich Jewish past. It's filled with art and artifacts (not from exactly pre-1492, but still beautiful) and a lovely courtyard. An incredibly interesting and precious space.
