    the House of Sefarad is at the heart of the Jewish quarter of Cordoba and is a place of cultural activities and performances organized to commemorate the Spanish-Jewish tradition of Sephardic Jews. The part of the permanent exhibits has several sections that remind parties, traditions but also everyday life. Interesting.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • Kitsch
  • Informative and eye opening

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.
