One of only three synagogues left in Spain. A must see even though it is very small. There was no fee to get in.

A small synagogue dating from 1315 whose origin are really not known as the size points to a private synagogue or possible part of a complex of buildings. Beautiful stucco in accordance with the Mudejar tradition and remnants of Hebrew inscriptions. One of only 3 such synagogues in Spain, with the other 2 in Toledo. Well worth a visit.

Very old Jewish synagogue which should be visited for its historical value. Nothing to rave about the artistic value of the place. If you are around just step in - it doesn't take long to visit the site.

Spain in general, and Cordoba in particular, are proud of the Jewish history that pervades the country. From the golden age under the Moors until the expulsion, the Jewish presence was strong and integrated into the culture. The synagogue is not in use - it's more of a preserved ruin under government auspices, but the carvings and decorations have been... More

Small synagogue but interesting to see. Explanations in English if it's history and of the inscriptions.

The Jews of Cordoba enjoyed significant power under the Moorish rule, with their advisors and physicians serving the Caliph. This came to a stunning end with the Reconquest, as both the Moors and the Jews were forced from their land. This Sinagoga is a stunning remnant of their existence in Cordoba, built in beautiful Islamic style.

We visited the synagogue in Cordoba after our visit to the Casa de Sefarad; it's directly across the street from the museum. I was surprised at how small it was, but it had been restored nicely. I wish there had been more descriptive information available, but it was fascinating, nonetheless. Definitely visit in conjunction with the Casa de Sefarad.

A bit disappointing in that there is not that much to see, but quality rather than quantity, and worth spending twenty minutes of your time (free entry) to have look.

We were in the Jewish Quarter and our tour guide brought us here to visit this small Jewish Synagogue of Cordoba, now a museum. It is one of the three significant synagogues remaining in Spain. We were told that this building may have been built by a rich man. What remains now are the walls - North, South, West and... More

Unusual small synagogue with Moorish influences. Well worth the short visit if you are wandering round the Jewish quarter. Free admission for EU citizens.
