Small but interesting

Small synagogue but interesting to see. Explanations in English if it's history and of the inscriptions.

The Jews of Cordoba enjoyed significant power under the Moorish rule, with their advisors and physicians serving the Caliph. This came to a stunning end with the Reconquest, as both the Moors and the Jews were forced from their land. This Sinagoga is a stunning remnant of their existence in Cordoba, built in beautiful Islamic style.

We visited the synagogue in Cordoba after our visit to the Casa de Sefarad; it's directly across the street from the museum. I was surprised at how small it was, but it had been restored nicely. I wish there had been more descriptive information available, but it was fascinating, nonetheless. Definitely visit in conjunction with the Casa de Sefarad.

A bit disappointing in that there is not that much to see, but quality rather than quantity, and worth spending twenty minutes of your time (free entry) to have look.

We were in the Jewish Quarter and our tour guide brought us here to visit this small Jewish Synagogue of Cordoba, now a museum. It is one of the three significant synagogues remaining in Spain. We were told that this building may have been built by a rich man. What remains now are the walls - North, South, West and... More

Unusual small synagogue with Moorish influences. Well worth the short visit if you are wandering round the Jewish quarter. Free admission for EU citizens.

this is another place you have to see. It is unusual to see a synagogue which a Moorish influence. Walk the Jewish Quarter and keep your eyes out for Hebrew letters in the streets.

If you are going to visit the Jewish quarter and you should make sure to stop into this tiny building that oozes a feeling of history. You will not spend a lot of time there but you will be happy you went.

No doubt this is historically important, but as a tourist attraction it only justifies a quick look-see. That said, if you are wandering round the Jewish quarter (which you really should), and you manage to find it then you should call in - it's free to EU citizens.

This tiny early 14th century Synagogue is located in the Jewish quarter of Cordoba, close to the Sephardic house. It contains much of its original decorative stucco and Hebrew inscriptions, and these are presented with great didactic panels that give translations in English and Spanish. They're also simply gorgeous! Since the entire structure survives, it gives a rare look into... More
