La Casa Andalusí, Cordoba

(320+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
A reconstruction of a Moorish home, La Casa Andalusí is a glimpse back in time. The house itself was built in the 12th century, and has been restored to reflect what it may have looked like just after it was constructed. Exhibits fill the rooms and patio. View coins used in the Moorish period in Andalucía, when the house was occupied by a family. These are displayed among handcrafted textiles, household tools, and furniture. One of the oldest paper-making machines is housed here, while the basement features a display of archaeological remains founds on the site.

  • a House restored and maintained with taste. The fountain in the middle of this Court with a light background of arabo-Andalusian music is a privileged moment. The owner deserves an against him.

  • Another testimony rich in architecture, ancient manuscripts of the time perfectly understandable, objects, paintings, machinery, tools all in a typical Arabian House which still through a suggestive music and the sound of running water makes us imagine the vitality and harmony of that time in a typical House of the time

  • This is on the tourist trail and interesting. However we found the less well advertised Casa de las Cabezas which does a similar thing but (in our opinion) does it better i.e. shows what life was like...  more »

  • . Well worth visiting Not fabulous, but a pleasant little interlude during a stroll round the Juderia. It won't take long - well under half an hour - and will be cramped if there are a lot of visitors as it is barely larger than your average semi in the suburbs. But it has some fascinating features and things to see, so wait until the crowds thin and then go in to really appreciate it. Lots of interesting details, although I would have liked more explanations about the daily life under Moorish rule. .
  • Very special. love the smell from the next-door restaurant. Makes the experience more full ;)
  • Give you a good view about Muslim and Arab history there.
  • A nice historic Andalusian house by Salma Al Faroqi. Many thanks to her for reviving the Muslim Andalusian heritage and bringing truth to the world a wonderful Andalusian house bought and created the distinguished Lady Salma Al-Faruqi. Tells us the tale of old Andalusia
