  • This House on three levels offers 6 rooms to visit. In each of them, description of the life of the local Jews at the beginning of the second millennium, domestic life and work, the inquisition... Very interesting. For the price (€4), it would be preferable to give the visitors a pamphlet to go, rather than 8 laminated sheets untethered hindering during the visit. The course could be better signposted, including top

  • In a beautiful house in the neighborhood of the Jewish quarter of Cordoba and a few meters from the synagogue is this interesting museum that summarizes the relationship of the Jewish population and 3 cultures (most Muslim and Catholic). Displays related topics with gastronomy, typical clothing, music and musical instruments, religious and daily utensils, as well as the participation of women and men important Jews as Maimonides. There is also a section related to the Inquisition, forced conversions, cars of faith and another which examines such as ladino and the Judeo-Spanish linguistic derivations. Entry costs €4 and is a very interesting tourist attraction that is worth visiting

  • A really really good museum !!! It holds a beautiful exhibition of Jewish-Spanish (Sefaradim) colture. Very worthy visiting.
  • An excellent little museum well worth visiting for another perspective on local history with particular (but not exclusive) reference to Jewish peoples living in Cordoba.
  • Pretty much the best place to find information and artifacts about Sephardi Jews
  • Informative and eye opening
  • Essential to a guided visit to enjoy and understand everything what there is exposed. It is a small sample, that is great thanks to the guides, that you introduce to Sephardic Jewish culture in an entertaining way. The visit to the Jewish Cordoba is incomplete if Casa Sefarad is not included in the tour. For me, it was magical.
