lovely area, lots of wee bars and places selling silver jewellery with people singing or playing guitars, we stayed for 6 nights, perhaps too long, 3 would be ideal

Loved the winding streets but also hated them because they got quite congested with human and vehicular traffic squeezing so close together and all sharing the same street! But lots to see and shop and photograph.... An unforgettable experience!!!

Enjoy wandering the narrow, winding alleys of Juderia, located adjacent to The Mezquita within the Historical Centre of Cordoba. Discover one of only 3 of Spain's Synagogues within Juderia's centre, built in the Mudejar style in the 10th Century. Cordoba was once the most populous city in the world. Here the Jewish population thrived, which designates this Juderia as the most famous in Spain.
Look for the statue of Maimonides, the famous Jewish doctor, astronomer and philosopher, one of the most prolific and influential Torah scholars of the Middle Ages, born on Passover Eve 1135 (1138?).
The narrow streets provide much appreciated shade and cover from Cordoba's intense sun.

On my short visit to Cordoba recently I was lucky enough to book a hotel in the heart of the Juderia - in fact you might even say I had the keys to the city (the hotel's title is La Llave de la Juderia - llave = key).

This is a tourist heaven - dreamy narrow streets that lead on to even more narrow ones, or out onto charming squared, good places to eat featuring local recipes - or a tourist hell - in some areas far too many shops selling almost exactly the same souvenirs, crowds to the point of feeling packed in, sardine-style.

There are sites, at least one important - the Sinagoga - and others of interest - the bull fighting museum - to which tourists flock as well.

But in addition there are other pleasures. One of the least touristy being an important part of the university, that of Philosophy and Letters. As you pass by the beautiful building that is its center you see students outdoors, grabbing a quick coffee, chatting, oblivious to the tourists swirling around them. As a former professor myself I imagine them readying themselves for their next classes. This, along with some serious artisan studios, small churches and so on, make one believe at least on occasion that alongside the tourist trade, real life is going on.

This is a beautiful area to wander round with museums, restaurants, bars and artisan shops making it a highlight of a visit to Cordoba. Stroll round on your own or can be done a walking tour if you wish to know more about the eclectic things that you will stumble on in this area. The narrow alleys with white washed walls and wall mounted lighting make this a very atmospheric area even before you realise the Jewish community that lived here were expelled from 1492.
A must do highly recommended.
