  • A really really good museum !!! It holds a beautiful exhibition of Jewish-Spanish (Sefaradim) colture. Very worthy visiting.
  • Pretty much the best place to find information and artifacts about Sephardi Jews

Where to stay in Cordoba

To experience the heart of Cordoba's old-world charm, the famous Jewish Quarter, or Judería, offers an array of family-owned pensions and boutique hotels with close proximity to the city's main attractions and lively tapas culture. A number of newer hotels surround the local train and bus stations offering more spacious accomodations, although removed from the city's historical district. Above all, be sure to book a hotel equipped with air conditioning as Cordoba is famous for its scorching tempuratures during the late spring and summer.
