    Maimonides statue
    You can visit the synagogue (it's free) and see its Arabian style interior. It used to be a church later so there is a trace of a cross on the wall.  There is a statue of the famous Moshe Maimonides outside; he was born in Cordoba and lived there up to age 13 (bar-mitzvah). They say you would get smarter after touching his shoe, it won't hurt to try...

    Wonderful slow visit
    My wife and I love to wander around old cities without a specific agenda and without a set time frame. This certainly fits this simple criteria. The pathways are often quite narrow and you pass businesses that you would be hard pressed to find again without GPS. We just took our time and greatly appreciated everything we saw and the spirit of the area. Definitely worthwhile to take your time and slow down the hectic cadence of travel. Enjoy.

    Lovely strolling around
    White washed houses, narrow streets and great museums are some of the attractions to be savoured in this historic and atmospheric district. First that came into view was the impressive turreted wall, very impressive. Stopping off for breakfast in one of the many cafes, it was then on to enjoy further sights. Casa Andalusí, Al-Iksir Alchemy Museum and Sinagoga de Córdoba are evocative and well worth the time spent.

    Take a tour if you want the history
    We had a combination tour of the town and Mezquita and felt it was especially worthwhile for the cathedral alone, but also for walking the town. We would have missed a lot of the subtle history markers throughout the town while enjoying the pretty white washed walls and elaborate doors. Not as cute as Barrio Santa Cruz in Seville and not as many sights as Toledo, but still worthwhile to see. Don't forget to go to the Roman bridge before leaving town (our tour group did not even include a stop for the bridge, but thankfully we were able to use the 15 minutes of free time after Mezquita to visit).

    Wander the maze-like streets
    Fascinating streets, lanes and alleyways in this ancient section of Cordoba. Many small and interesting shops, as well as interesting architecture. The Sinagoga de Cordoba is located in a small courtyard in this area.

We happened upon this neighborhood and were delighted to discover an artisan shop. We purchased two beautiful leatherwork pieces by Jose Maria Ruiz. We passed several other artisan shops, several with the artists sitting there crafting their next piece. If you are looking for that unique piece of art or craftsmanship that captures the Cordoban spirit then this is the area for you. However, be mindful of bringing lots of euros as many do not take credit cards.

The Jewish Quarter is a wonderful area to visit. Our hotel was in fact located in this area. It is full of history and the lovely narrow laneways are a delight to walk through. There are also many interesting sights such as the Sephardic Jewish Philosopher Maimonides statue, the Puerta de Almodóvar, an old city gate and many others. Certainly worth a visit.

This lovely district of Córdoba was once home to a thriving Jewish community, and is full of narrow, twisting alleys and streets, with beautiful whitewashed buildings, patios, and small restaurants. Take the time to wander the streets, taking in both the history and the bustle of the current day. Don't forget to stop and admire the Statue of Maimonedes, the famous Jewish philosopher-doctor. This neighborhood is well-preserved from the way it was centuries ago, and gives a rare glimpse into another way of life. There is still a Jewish synagogue here, which is free to enter. It gets hot during the day, so time your stroll accordingly.

Seemingly an anachronism today, such quarters were common in medieval European cities. Its look today is similar to other aspects of the Historic Center with small alleys and an utter lack of a grid pattern of streets. The Arabs had a better relationship with the Jews than the Christians, the latter expelling the Jews from Spain in 1492. Even without an appreciation of history you can readily enjoy a stroll through its quiet streets.

To truly understand the history of Cordoba and Andalucia you should pay a visit to the jewish quarter. You should take the time to visit small synagogue in the jewish quarter and do not miss the unique opportunity to visit the Casa de Sefarad a museum for the spanish jewish culture. This is a unique opportuinity. The Casa de Sefarad has a wonderful gift shop with unique and beutiful items.

A very atmospheric and surprisingly non commercial (which is a great asset) old area close to the Mezquita. A network of narrow narrow lanes and small Plazas combine this relatively small area. It's important to remember that the Juderia is a part of the much larger Historic Centre of Cordoba. The Jewish heritage remains in the district through the Sinagoga, the statue of Maimonides (a jewish philosopher) and Casa Sefarad. Other attractions include Museo Taurino, Zoco Municipal and the beautiful Plaza Cardenal Salazar.

Do visit the Synagogue, the oldest surviving in Spain, with its fine filigree sculpture. The Andalusian house museum a few doors away was well worth visiting - furnished in Mudejar style with a Roman mosaic in the cellar and a little paper making museum. Delightful.

A typical quarter found in any Mediterranean city with its narrow streets , high walls and cute blackbird with blue/white painted houses you find in Tunis, Spain. France , Italy , Greece etc. like those places , very tourist oriented with food, craft and souvenirs . A decent place to walk pass after/before visiting the main site .
