Synagoga w Kordobie to zabytkowa budowla w żydowskiej dzielnicy Kordoby, zbudowana w 1315 roku. Wystrój synagogi był wykonany według najlepszej tradycji mudejar z płyt stiukowych a inskrypcje pochodzą głównie z Psalmów. Po wydaleniu Żydów z Kordoby w 1492 roku, synagoga została przekształcona przez władze w szpital dla osób cierpiących na wściekliznę. W 1588 budynek został zmieniony na małą kaplicę św. Kryspina, patrona szewców. W 1885 roku budynek został uznany pomnikiem narodowym. Od tego czasu przeszedł kilka etapów renowacji, ostatnia rozpoczęła się w 1977 roku w związku z otwarciem budynku z okazji 850 rocznicy urodzin Majmonidesa. - The Córdoba Synagogue is a historic building in the Jewish quarter of Cordoba, built in 1315. The decor of the synagogue was made according to the best Mudejar tradition from stucco slabs and the inscriptions came mainly from Psalms. After the expulsion of Jews from Cordoba in 1492, the synagogue was transformed by the authorities into a hospital for people suffering from rabies. In 1588, the building was changed into a small chapel of St. Kryspina, patron of shoemakers. In 1885, the building was declared a national monument. Since then it has undergone several stages of renovation, the last one began in 1977 in connection with the opening of the building to celebrate the 850th anniversary of Maimonides birthday.
Interesting place, very small. Remnants of the very first synagogue in Spain. It is not one anymore, it’s a historical site.
It is not a sinagoga. It is a museum or a model if anything. It is an interesting place though. But they should make it clear.
The Synagogue is currently closed for refurbishment (4th August 2018) but when open it will be a great place to see the Jewish and Muslim architecture come to life
Great to see the inside of a building with such an important history, one of only 3 left in Spain. Some well preserved carvings on the stone walls.
