This is a small museum that gives a view to the extinct Jewish life in Cordoba. You will see worship objects reflecting Jewish craftmanship. Learn about the the Jewish contribution to society and the relationship with the Christian society at large.

How do I find out what is open on Sunday evening (Sept 4, 2011) and Monday (Sept 5, 2011)? When I'm looking on the internet at various attractions and places to eat, very few indicate days of week / hours of operation. We will be arriving at our hotel 1800 hrs on Sept. 4. and would like to attend Tablao Flamenco Cardenal that night, and Mezquita de Cordoba on Monday. Are they open on those days? ?Casa de Sefarad ? Casa Andalusi Thank you for any help provided.

How much time should we allot to the Mesquita? (2 Replies)
We are only in Cordoba for the day, and trying to figure out if we have enough time for a 2 hour walking tour, followed by a visit to the Mesquita, a walk around the Juderia with visit to the Sinagoga and perhaps Casa de Sefarad in one day. How much time, without rushing would you allot to properly see the Mesquita?

A couple of hours will give you time to experience and enjoy the Mesquita.

Could you please advise whether I selected the most important places and I allocated enough time to visit them. What out of "optional" group is of more importance?

Response fromjosebenjamin|
You have certainly selected the "must see" places well, but I believe you will need more time to visit and enjoy the Alcazar, The Viana Palace (Rooms and gardens), and the Mezquita. I would leave out the Chapel of San Bartolome, it is difficult to find and not that attractive. Make sure you take some time to walk around the old quarter of Cordoba, all round the "Juderia", the Roman bridge and perhaps the Royal Equestrian School, next to the Alcazar.
