  • A lot of explanations on the functions of all the rooms of the house. Cooking, weaving, politics, religion, history: this place is a very large testimony  more »
  • The Jews have left a certain mark. Without this city. This "casa" gives a history that cannot be ignored. Extremely well documented and explained

  • The exhibition presents the old Jewish life of the city. The entrance fee is € 4. You can spend 30-45 min. in the casa because there are many rooms and interesting items. You get two larger laminated textual brochures to help your visit in the casa but you you have to give them back at the end. There is a lavatory at the end of the yard.
  • Impressive museum dedicated to the Jewish history of Spain, established by non-Jews who took an interest to the subject. The museum guide Ramon is very knowledgeable and has a profound understanding of this part of Spanish history. Beautiful Sephardic singing concerts are offered with prior arrangement.
  • Highly recommended. Enter here for a fascinating journey through the history of Sefarad culture on the Iberian Peninsula and beyond. OK, I admit I have an interest in the subject, but don't worry if you don't know anything about it. This museum is designed to offer you a manageable introduction to the subject, and I am as sure you will wonder how you ever let this rich culture and its people evade you as I am that you will want to find out more when you leave. Staff here are very helpful and well- informed and some are multilingual. Enjoy!
  • Very interesting but small museum.Much emphasis on inquisition.Would have liked more detail on the history prior to the inquisition.Still all in all it was very interesting and worth an hour to visit-mostly reading as displays somewhat sparse
  • An excellent small museum that deals with Córdoba's Jewish figures and everyday lives, but also larger themes such as diasporas or the Spanish Inquisition. Cheap entry and a lot to see. Most information in English as well as Spanish.
