The Jews have played a special part in the prosperity of Cordoba. They were given religious independence under the Caliphate and Jewish life and intellectualism flourished under the Arab rule. One can almost smell the Moorish influence in the narrow network of fascinating alleys. There are a number of monuments of interest in the historic centre of Cordoba, of which the Jewish quarter is one of the most intriguing areas. Don’t miss a visit to the beautiful Synagogue in this neighbourhood. The area is also full of small shops selling jewellery and other trinkets which adds to the eclecticism of the Quarter.

Jewish Quarter, Cordoba Reviews - Write a Review
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.
Worth visiting. This is one of the major centres of Córdoba's former Jewish community in the mediaeval period. You should also visit the museum next door.
Small, but historical. They let folks inside in small groups, so expect a short wait in line. Not too much to see except the carvings of the old walls and some Hebrew writing. Original built in 1315 and is one of only 3 synagogues that survived to Inquisition. Signage is in Spanish and English. Free. Closed Mondays. Go if nearby and no huge line of tour groups, otherwise skip it.
If you are wandering around the old Jewish neighborhood, consider visiting this historic synagogue, one of the only surviving medieval ones left from the Inquisition. There are tastefully short English signs around, and the whole visit will not take more than 20 min for the most thorough tourists. Looking at the gorgeous Hebrew with geometric decorations similar to many Moorish buildings on the walls, you can't help but think of the peaceful coexistence that existed centuries ago.
Ramón, the archeologist guide blew mind away. He's concise and very afable. This place is a must for anyone trying to understand the history of Spain and of the Spanish people
