  • So many traces of Jewish life in Spain before 1492 have been lost, that it is surprising to see a museum that so carefully describes who the Spanish (Sephardic) Jews were and how they lived, describes...  more »

  • 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.
