  • 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.

  • 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 informative exhibits,no tourist trap. Lots of text in Spanish and English (not a standard here :-) ), they speak English and French well too.
  • Outstanding small museum. Great display of the Spanish Sefard history.
  • Very interesting and beautiful displays.
  • A really really good museum !!! It holds a beautiful exhibition of Jewish-Spanish (Sefaradim) colture. Very worthy visiting.

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.
