La Casa Andalusí, Cordoba
(3.9/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • If you visit this old Andalusian-styled house, do it at the end of the day. It's tranquil and quaint and you can sit around in there if you want. We had it to ourselves - November 2016. Worth 4 euros?...  more »
  • Is located in the Jewish quarter. Presented the situation of the past. There is a Museum of the same paper. A lot of Greens. There are ceramics and other attributes of a past life in Andalucia. Very showy mistress of this House

  • In the Jewish quarter of Córdoba was opened this House in 1997, evoking the times of the Caliphate. The traditional architecture has been restored by the architect Arturo Ramirez Laguna, and succeeded in recovering the memory of times past, since medieval times. The interior decoration has items, furniture, and demonstrative objects display of local culture. For example, the papermaking technique used by the Arabs. Under the main structure, there are elements characteristic of the houses of the Jews, including a passage that goes beyond the city walls. It is also a space containing a Roman or Byzantine mosaic, besides tiles Visigoths, dated to the 17th century. Vi and VII. Is an oasis of tranquility, which is reflected in the Lord that we receive at the entrance of the House. Very nice and attentive.

  • . 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
