The Jewish Quarter in Cordoba, best konown as "Juderia", is located in the very historic centre of the city, and it is considered nowadays as the most well-preserved urban site among Spanish medieval Jewish Quarter. In this environment, we invite you to start a journey trhough time and discover one of the hardest, most cruel and obscure stages of our history.
