Visit Sinagoga to see one of the most well-preserved Jewish history sites in Spain. Located in Córdoba’s renowned Jewish Quarter, the 14th-century synagogue features Mudéjar-style plasterwork and detailing throughout the main hall, women’s area, and courtyard. Marvel at the three decorative arches that overlook the prayer room in the women’s gallery and the original Hebrew inscriptions that adorn the walls of the main hall. Relax for a few moments in the tranquil garden courtyard, enjoying the afternoon sun. The synagogue is free of charge but visiting hours are limited, so check the website before you go. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Cordoba holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Sinagoga and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • If you are wandering around the old Jewish neighborhood, consider visiting this historic synagogue, one of the only surviving medieval ones left from the Inquisition. There are tastefully short English signs around, and the whole visit will not take more than 20 min for the most thorough tourists. Looking at the gorgeous Hebrew with geometric decorations similar to many Moorish buildings on the walls, you can't help but think of the peaceful coexistence that existed centuries ago.
  • Although small, this is an incredible place to visit. And there's no fee
  • One room, quite small, but free and fairly interesting with intricate designs
  • It's pretty but quite small. No need for entrance fee
  • I didnt know anything about what happened to theJewish population during the Spanish and Cordoban Inquisition. Learned a lot with the hand out. Take the time to read and educate yourself. Artifacts didn't interest me much though.

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.
