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.

  • Deeply disturbing Museum of human inflicted suffering in the name of religion. It is unimaginable that humans could do this to each other. A chilling reminder of the capacity for evil we carry within us, and a good reminder the why the separation of church and state was a good idea. Hint: It was never for the protection of the church, but for the state, who, when fueled by religious fervor will industrialize evil in the name of religion. That said it is still a worthy exhibit to see.
  • It's amazing place to see when in Cordoba. Not for weak stomachs
  • A fun museum! Not really about the inquisition though. This museum is more of a gallery of antique torture devices. There really isn't that much information about the inquisition. Having said this, we still really enjoyed it and it is cheap! (3 euro on 9 June 2016). Well worth a visit when it is so hot outside!
  • Great fun and if you like that sort of thing it's pretty gory too
  • I walked into the ticket area before I realized this wasn't so much about the Inquisition as it was about the instruments people in power used to do the most awful things to helpless people. I don't have the stomach for that. I left without going inside.
